Wesley Day at Wesley's Chapel

May 24th is the anniversary of the 'warmed heart' experience of John Wesley. It's traditional for the President and Vice-President to celebrate this with a service at Wesley's Chapel followed by a pilgrimage around places of special significance: Wesley's tomb, the grave of Susannah Wesley, and Aldersgate street, where the conversion experience took place. This year it also fell on Pentecost Sunday, appropriately, since this was the time when the Holy Spirit fell upon the disciples and the Christian Church was born.
It was a great thrill for me to take part in these ceremonies, not least to be the preacher at Wesley's Chapel on this special day!
