Blogger Rev. Brent L White traveled to the coast of Georgia on vacation and encountered memories of John Wesley‘s missionary work with the Georgia colony at Savannah.
Wesley, as many of you know, briefly ministered in the new British colony of Georgia (from February 6, 1736 to December 2, 1737), an experience that, by Wesley’s own account, was a failure. Like all such “failures” in God’s kingdom, however, God used it as an important formative experience from which Wesley learned and grew.
White has some photos of historical markers and Wesley related sites.
