Thought for the Week: Latest Edition
I bet that if Charles Dickens was alive today he would be writing scripts for Eastenders rather than novels. Keats would probably be writing pop songs rather than poetry. They would want their stories, characters and amazing use of language to reach the largest audience possible and not be restricted to the printed word of their own time.
John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, had a similar zeal for getting his message across to as many people as possible. He saw the world as his parish. In the eighteenth century he travelled the length and breadth of the land preaching in the open air to all who would listen to his message of salvation for all.
Today he would have other ways of preaching the good news. I am sure he would be delighted to see our new website and the opportunity it gives us for reaching out to the wider community. The message we preach though has not changed: that we all need the love of God and we can all find it through Jesus Christ who brings us eternal life.
