Happy Birthday, John Wesley!

John Wesley Quote

John Wesley also said “Do you not know that God entrusted you with that money (all above what buys necessities for your families) to feed the hungry, to clothe the naked, to help the stranger, the widow, the fatherless (and motherless); and, indeed, as far as it will go, to relieve the wants of all humankind? How can you, how dare you, defraud the Lord, by applying it to any other purpose?”

Wesley was an advocate for social justice, emphasized grace, cared for others, and preached a radical gospel for his time.

Happy 311th birthday, John!
