This Month's Talking Point
'God is everywhere but not everyone is aware'
This is a quote from a slide at one of the sessions during the recent Circuit initiative on Whole Life Discipleship.
You may have seen the Songs of Praise programme broadcast on the first Sunday in January which focussed on John Wesley, Methodism and the Covenant Service. In it the Rev Kate Botley visited the New Room in Bristol, the first Methodist Church to be built in 1739. While there, she interviewed Methodist historian Gary Best. During the interview he said about John Wesley, ‘He did not talk about converting people but about awakening them to the fact that God loved them and that that could make a huge difference to their lives.’
How might Wesley’s approach be relevant to us today?
