BICULTURALISM & THE SALVATION ARMY

Despite much good work there is a high level of disconnect between what is going on in the community regarding Maori/pakeha relationships, and what many Salvationists perceive.
For a start I would love ALL Salvationists in NZ at ALL LEVELS to do three things:

1. Read Lloyd Martin's little book (10+ years old now), "One Faith Two People" (Lloyd is a man with excellent credentials, trusted by the salvation army in youth work area).

2. Engage with the people in the story and ask - "is what happened fair?"; -"what annoys me about this book?"; -"what would I do differently/the same?" -"how can I learn more?"

3. Talk to somebody who may have a different view to you about these things.
