We Don’t Believe in Saints, Right? Yes & No — an All Saints Day BONUS BLOG

November 1, 2017

From a source where I’m about to send you —

John Wesley, founder of the Methodist movement, enjoyed and celebrated All Saints Day.

In a journal entry from November 1, 1767, Wesley calls it “a festival I truly love.”

On the same day in 1788, he writes, “I always find this a comfortable day.”

The following year he calls it “a day that I peculiarly love.”

This may sound odd. United Methodists don’t believe in saints, right? 

Well, yes… and no.
