"Onward, Christian Facilitators!"

Marching as to lunch?
Diogenes, at Off the Record, on the attempts to ....er, pacify those who are not too keen on the image presented by the term, Church Militant and any hymn lyrics that might contribute to that image.
Unless I'm mistaken, the "hosts of God" [in the text to Lift High the Cross] who once combined in "conquering ranks" have now become "glorious ranks." No doubt that is to reassure everyone that we Christians aren't in the conquering business anymore.
He and one of his readers also suggest "vibrant" ranks, "nuanced" rank... anything to add?

Those conquering ranks might want to marshal their forces against the Forces of Dimness.
