John Wesley at Aldersgate

May 2014    

John Wesley at Aldersgate

Tired and weary in the truth or
Spurred by duty’s firm estate
Mr Wesley learned from Luther
Late one night at Aldersgate.

None proclaimed the kingdom missal,
Holy sang, or set apart;
Dry the words of the Epistle
That strangely warmed the faithful heart.

And from the boredom of a reading
Heaven opened, faith returned,
And fanned a flame for Christ exceeding
Stained glass walls, and bricks… and burned.

The Rev Todd Outcalt is the pastor of Calvary United Methodist Church in Brownsburg, Indiana (USA), and the author of thirty books, including Candles in the Dark, The Best Things in Life Are Free, and Where in the World We Meet (poems). He enjoys mission work, kayaking, and hiking with his wife and family.
