Swansea, Wales, UK

For Methodists, it's Aldersgate Sunday, a commemoration of the day, in 1728, when John Wesley felt his heart 'strangely warmed' with the holy spirit. Here he is in Wales, preaching the gospel. It is part of the tradition of "open air evangelism" that would give the American landscape so many camp meetings in the 1800s. [2005]
