JOHN WESLEY MOMENTS
DAVE HANSON 


On October 6, 1774, John Wesley wrote in his journal:

“I met with those who had votes in the ensuing election, and advised them:

  1.  To vote without fee or reward, for the person they judged most worthy
  2.  To speak no evil of the person they voted against, and
  3.  To take care that their spirits were not sharpened against those who voted on the other side.”
The Rev. Dave Hanson is a retired pastor and John Wesley scholar.
