CHRIST IN WINTER: Reflections on Faith & Life for the Years of Winter –
In these days of controversy about refugees, I thought it might be interesting to see how the original Methodists dealt with strangers…
“In the morning I met the Strangers Society, instituted wholly for the relief, not of our society, but for the poor, sick, and friendless strangers. I do not think that I ever heard or read of such an institution till within a few years ago. So this also is one of the fruits of Methodism.” John Wesley’s Journal, Sunday, March 14, 1790.
