When we think of The Salvation Army – most people think of seeing those bright red kettles and the cheerful bell ringers at the holidays. William Booth founded The Salvation Army in London in 1852. A minister, Booth fought with church leaders who wanted ministry to stay inside the church. Booth insisted on going outside so the gospel could transform the lives of street people – who were desperate and destitute. The Salvation Army continues to be the hands and feet of Jesus today. In Chicago, they serve a wide range of people, from the young to the old, to the addicted and the homeless. People like Henry Lee Williams, who was found sleeping on the street in a cardboard box. The Salvation Army rescued Henry and today he’s thriving and serving God.
