John Wesley: Outdoor Preacher



It would be hard to list the various settings in which John Wesley preached the Gospel. He preached in small chapels, homes, great cathedrals, parks, meadows, mining pits, bridges, barns, you name it …

Such outdoor preaching came with built in perils: rain, snow, mobs, heat, cold, wind, you name it …

On one unusual day John Wesley was just beginning his outdoor sermon when an “unprovoked wasp” stung him on his lip! He feared the lip would swell preventing his preaching. But that didn’t happen. He preached for two hours with no discomfort and again the next day.
