May 25 – Devotion for Pastor Craig

Show Notes:

  • Here are the General Rules, if you wanted to read through them your self. As a bit of context; the ‘United Societies’ were essentially worship services, ‘class meetings’ were small groups and attendance for membership as a Methodist was required, lastly there were optional ‘band meetings’ which served as intensive accountability groups. 
  • If you are interested in further reading on class meetings. Kevin Watson, one of my professors in seminary has written an accessible book on Methodist Class meetings. Or, for the spark notes version, here are a series of blog posts he has written.
  • “You shall know the truth, and the truth will make you odd.”
  • “Push back against the age as hard as it pushes against you.” – Flannery O’Connor
