John Wesley in America


John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, made a missionary trip to the colony of Georgia in the 1730’s. I recently spoke at Epworth-by-the-Sea, a Methodist retreat center on St. Simon’s Island, GA. This is the place where the Wesleys (John and Charles) came, particularly Fort Frederica. There is a beautiful Celtic cross commemorating their time on the island that we got to visit.
