William Booth did something special with the Salvation Army. I’ll let them talk about it:
In 1865, William Booth was invited to hold a series of evangelistic meetings in the East End of London. He set up a tent in a Quaker graveyard, and his services became an instant success. This proved to be the end of his wanderings as an independent traveling evangelist. His renown as a religious leader spread throughout London, and he attracted followers who were dedicated to fight for the souls of men and women.
Kinda creepy with the graveyard thing but…sometimes in the face of death, life comes?
I wonder what’s next.
