John Wesley, The Parish And The World

Here is the third and final thought I want to share with you from Julian Reindorp’s talks at the Ministry Today conference.

He said this to us during worship in the chapel at Pleshey Retreat House:

John Wesley said the world was his parish. Forgive us for reversing this, and making the parish our world.”

Have we just become consumed with church matters rather than the kingdom?

    I think we can all read this and then look inside our hearts and at our lives and think, “Oh yeah! – I’ve got my priorities all mixed up!”
