Follow Footsteps of Wesley Pilgrimage in Facebook Posts

November 10, 2011

Two pastors from the California-Nevada Annual Conference are off on a 10-day Wesley Pilgrimage to England and one of them – the Rev. Paul Joseph Khamdy Yang of First United Methodist Church in Roseville, California – is sharing his experiences and photos on Facebook at!/1stUMC.

Along with Yang, the Rev. Becky Goodwin, appointed to a sabbatical year, has joined a group of 33 pilgrims from all over the United States to embark on a spiritual journey through Methodist history sites from Salisbury to London.
Walking in the footsteps of John and Charles Wesley and the early Methodists, they plan to visit such sites as Epworth, John and Charles Wesley's birthplace; Oxford, where John and Charles Wesley received theological education and led the Holy Club; Bristol – the home of the Methodist societies and class meeting; London, where both Wesley brothers experienced assurance of salvation and John Wesley built the center of British Methodism; and Salisbury, home to a vital Methodist congregation once served by Francis Asbury.
