Kevin Watson has a three-part series of posts up right now about “holy conferencing,” a buzz phrase that gets thrown around a lot in United Methodism. (Part 1. Part 2. Part 3.)
The first part of that series notes that John Wesley never used the phrase “holy conferencing,” or at least we do not have any record of him doing so.
Watson lists links to other posts he’s written about things Wesley never said. Some of them might be familiar to you.
“personal and social holiness”
“Do all the good you can, by all the means you can …”
“I set myself on fire and people come to watch me burn.”
“In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity.”
