|Have you been listening to the news lately? We are living in a world of rapid change and confusing complexity. People are lost. And while the daily turmoil of corruption and disaster shakes our senses, we must not separate ourselves from the hope in which we have been established.|
Under the mandate and motivation of the Holy Spirit, John Wesley saw in the chaos of his time the challenge of spiritual regeneration for individuals and moral transformation for society.
We who claim the discipline of hope and the grace of holiness must act. We who walk in the tradition of Francis Asbury, Phoebe Palmer, Phineas Bresee, Oswald Chambers, and Catherine Booth must confront the future. For such a time as this, the passion and principle of John Wesley's "Faith working through love" becomes essential to living and proclaiming the gospel of Christ.
Dr. David McKenna, noted author and scholar, celebrates these simple, yet distinctive foundations in his timely book What a Time to Be Wesleyan! He reminds us of intrinsic beliefs that provide the living answers for today's dying world. And he urges us to embrace the opportunities we are given to proclaim the gospel. McKenna shares with enthusiasm the challenges facing present-day Wesleyans as they face the future.
While Wesleyans have the heritage of the Biblical message revealed as simple truth, we also have the responsibility to share the truth with others today. Catch the enthusiasm in What a Time to Be Wesleyan! Paper.
