Facebook is my parish (well for the moment)

The world is my parish

The founder of the Methodist Movement John Wesley said after he had been prevented from delivering a sermon from the pulpit of the church which his late father had been minister of, stood on his father’s grave and preached the gospel he did this in defiance of canon law which stated that as an ordained Anglican minister in order to preach from another parish one would need the permission of the priest in charge of that parish. John Wesley said in his journal,

“I look on all the world as my parish; thus far I mean, that, in whatever part of it I am, I judge it meet, right, and my bounden duty, to declare unto all that are willing to hear, the glad tidings of salvation”.

if John Wesley was alive today he would be using social media and all forms of it whether that would be Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Zoom, Skype and many other digital media communicative forms

I don’t know about the world being my parish like it was John Wesley’s because I am not John Wesley but you can reach a lot of people on social media and who knows through your words you could bring many souls to Christ.
