John Wesley's Sermons Revisited and Reinterpreted
John Wesley is the founder of the Methodist expression of Christianity. His sermons are part of the doctrinal heritage of our faith and still guide us in important ways toward faithfulness. This month we are going to be revisiting and reinterpreting some of Wesley’s sermons for our annual focus on discipleship.
I am amazed at how many of the things that Wesley addressed are still pertinent and timely today. I hope that you will join me in this series as we make connections with our faith heritage and connect it with our current call to discipleship in Jesus Christ.
We will begin this series this Sunday as we celebrate World Communion Sunday. We will come to the Lord’s Table with our brothers and sisters across the globe. This signifies the depth and breadth of God’s reach through The Lord’s Table as we explore the meaning of The Lord’s Supper, Holy Communion, as a means of God’s grace availed to us through this sacrament of the church. Symbolic visuals and special music are planned to make this a meaningful time of worship together.
Come and share with us at The Lord’s Table as we share that table with our worldwide community of faith. Make this journey of discipleship with us as we explore Wesley’s wisdom as interpreted for our world today. Use this opportunity to grow in your personal and communal discipleship as we, the Body of Christ, here at FUMC seek to be A Beacon of Hope for All.
Grace and Peace,
