The anniversary of John Wesley's transformative experience in a meeting room in Aldersgate Street, London is on May 24th. In 1738. in his journal, John recorded that, during a reading from Martin Luther's Preface to the Epistle to the Romans, he felt that his heart was "strangely warmed." His brother, Charles Wesley-hymn writer, had had a similar experience a few days prior to John. This is regarded as a key moment in the beginnings of the 18th century Methodist revival.
