Strangely warmed

by Richard on May 24, 2005

On May 24th 1738, John Wesley wrote in his journal:

“In the evening I went very unwillingly to a society in Aldersgate street, where one was reading Luther’s preface to the epistle to the Romans. About a quarter before nine, while he was describing the change which God works in the heart through faith in Christ, I felt my heart strangely warmed. I felt I did trust in Christ, Christ alone for salvation; and an assurance was given me that he had taken away my sins, even mine, and saved me from the law of sin and death.”

I’m a friend of ‘reverendmommy’ and we will be visiting South Wales during the week of June 5-11, staying in Cardiff. The prior week we’ll be in London and plan to visit the spot where JW was strangely warmed and see the Wesley Chapel. Sounds like you were in the U.S. and Atlanta not long ago. My best — Dave

I spent a few weeks in the US last year, and we paid a fleeting visit to Atlanta. What brings you to South Wales?
