During a mission on the Chatham Islands, Sister North may have been an unusual sight, being a woman in ministry. When questioned about this, she replied, "They probably thought the Church Army was a bit mad anyway, and were sure to do funny things."
I'd like to think that people still us that way, but I fear we have become tame and domesticated, trying to fit in and be accepted rather than to dare to be different - prophetic even. WE have a friend in UK who defines a typical CA evangelist as "odd". Fools for Christ anyone?
