JOHN WESLEY MOMENTS
DAVE HANSON
 
John Wesley met some very strange people. None were stranger than the man at Dewberry who charged up out of the congregation at Wesley and in a rage struck him with all his might on his face. The blow was so violent as to bring tears into Wesley’s eyes, but without a moment’s hesitation, according to Christ’s precepts, John Wesley turned his other cheek. Amazed and confounded, the fierce assailant fell back and sought to hide his face. From that time on he became a devoted friend of the Methodists, and at a later time risked his life to save one of their chapels from destruction.
