    Divine Calling, Organisational Voice: A discursive study of ‘calling’ and how it informs clergy organisational identity.
    (Journal of Adult Theological Education; 9 (1) ) 2012 Grey, Terry
    The notion of divine “calling” plays a significant part in the narratives of many who seek to take up some form of “ordained” ministry within the Church. This article attempts to explore how the notion of “divine calling” as part of organizational discourse establishes a particular set of relationships between the individual and the organization, and thus contributes to the ways in which individual clergy identity is formed. Through intersecting a situated learning perspective with a Foucauldian approach to discourse analysis I seek to illuminate the particular mechanisms, technologies and strategies that are employed to maintain the existing system and its construction of Salvation Army officer identity in relation to the organization.

    Identity-Forming Theological Education: The Practice of Confession in the Formation of Salvation Army Officers
    (Religious Education; 109 (2) ) 2014 Grey, Terry
    Preparing future Christian leaders to take their place in the Church is not only about ensuring they have the capacities (intellectual, pastoral, strategic leadership, public performance, etc.), but that they become significant carriers of the traditions, beliefs, and practices that define a particular community of faith. Learning to become a Salvation Army officer is substantially concerned with this perpetuation of organizational culture. As such, individual learning may be constructed in terms of taking up a particular social identity that conforms to the needs and expectations of the organization. Through discourse analysis I surface one particular element of organizational discourse—“confession”—and examine how power/knowledge circulates to produce a Salvation Army officer identity.

    Holiness and Social Justice: Dialogue report Commissioned by The Salvation Army and the Uniting Church in Australia
    2018 Carter, Rosemary ; Durston, Graham ; Grey, Terry ; Logan, Morag ; O'Brien, Glen ; Shepherd, Janet ; Yule, Sandy ; Savage, Grattan-Jon ; Yule, Sandy
    The Uniting Church in Australia and The Salvation Army have a strong theological commitment to holiness and social justice as a shared understanding of Christian faith and life. The dialogue between the two churches has resulted in this book: ‘Holiness & Social Justice’. ‘Holiness & Social Justice’ is guided by six theological affirmations: 1) Grace is not only God’s gracious favour bestowed upon the undeserving; it is also God’s empowerment, enabling lives that reflect God’s holy character. 2) In both Old and New Testaments, love for God and neighbour is the characteristic mark of those who are holy. 3)‘Perfection’ is not to be understood in the philosophical sense of absoluteness, but in terms of the loving character of God. 4) The gift of the Spirit, given to all believers, both demands and enables a new way of living. 5) Personal holiness can never be divorced from engagement with the world and has profoundly political dimensions. 6) The perfecting of human beings, so that by grace they become partakers of the divine nature, is but part of a broader perfecting of all creation in an eschatological renewal of the entire universe.
