Grace, she takes the blame
She covers the shame
Removes the stain
It could be her name
Grace, it’s the name for a girl
It’s also a thought that changed the world
And when she walks on the street
You can hear the strings
Grace finds goodness in everything
Grace, she’s got the walk
Not on a ramp or on chalk
She’s got the time to talk
She travels outside of karma
She travels outside of karma
When she goes to work
You can hear her strings
Grace finds beauty in everything
To Serve is a course that has been developed to help inspire young people about The Salvation Army, past, present and future; and their role within it.

In the last couple of weeks, a few American politicians have announced that will be standing in the presidential elections. The election day they are standing in is still 18 months away, that means the election campaign is 18 months long! Suddenly the two months of TV debates, constant interviews and Facebook posts that we have had in the lead up to the General Election doesn't seem that bad.
“It's my policy”, “you'll find it in our policy statement”. MPs often refer to two big things in the run up to an election, their manifesto and their policies. With every party having a different set of policies, how do we know which ones are right, which are wrong, and who we should vote for?
If someone was to look back at every choice you've made in the past five years, how would they feel? Could you defend every choice you've made? Right now that's exactly what is happening to every MP who is standing for re-election in their local area. They are expected to be able to explain the way they have voted in parliament, and to prove they have represented their local area during the last five years. Not everyone will agree with the choices they have made, and everyone they meet on the campaign trail will have different views on life, and different party alliances.
Welcome to our very own Advent calendar. We will be posting a thought everyday throughout Advent so make sure you keep coming back to see what we've got to share.

The Bible is an amazing and beautiful gift from God. It is so much more than a book, so much more than a resource or tool. It’s the gift that keeps on giving! Did you know – the Bible has been translated into more than 1,200 languages, and it is historically the best-selling book of all time! It contains 66 books split into the Old and New Testaments, and there are said to be around 40 different people who wrote various parts of the Bible over 1,600 years between 1500BC and 100AD. But why is it such a hot seller?
