Something to think about:

Wise thoughts from John Wesley, worth pondering . . . 

"It is no marvel that the devil does not love field preaching!  Neither do I; I love a commodious room, a soft cushion, a handsome pulpit.  But where is my zeal if I do not trample all these undefoot in order to save one more soul?"

   Watch this space for more wise thoughts . . .
