This is another one of the blogs that I have received in the past week that speaks to the nature of what it means to be a Methodist. It is interesting that Scott is a Yankee in a Tennessee court and I am from Tennessee but in a Yankee court. 🙂
(A Remembrance on Aldersgate)
Over the last week, I had the opportunity to have a meal with a lifelong southern Baptist. During that meal the question arose of why I was so far from home. After I told him about why I was the Yankee in Tennessee court, there was a pause, followed by a scrunched brow and “what is a methodist anyways?”
Although I have some text-book answers to that question, the truth is you cannot answer that question, without asking and answering another question; who was John Wesley. Although it is Jesus in whom we put our faith, trust and love…It was John Wesley, whose life, sermons, teaching, and ministry serves to become a filter of just what a Wesleyan Christian looks like.
Who was John Wesley?
