The final room of the museum shares John Wesley's principles. It is striking to see that many, if not all of them resonate with us today. Instead of allowing this to discourage us, let it be the rally call to inspire us to continue the work begun here in Bristol over 250 years ago. Let us remember that in all these ways we can reflect Christ; His grace, His patience, His humility, His love for the poorest, and His love of justice.
A quote taken from John Wesley's 1774 journal, written on 6 October:
'I met those of our society who had votes in the ensuing election, and advised them: To vote, without fee or reward, for the person they judged most worthy, to speak no evil of the person they voted against, and to take care their spirits were not sharpened against those that voted on the other side.'
