Stir the Fire 8x4 Landscape v1 

The Revd Bill Phares, a Methodist minister from Alabama, along with his wife Laura,
are responding to God’s call to come and pray for God to stir the fire again in the UK.
They will be praying at numerous historic Methodist sites,
and invite others, especially Methodists, to participate. 

If you would be interested in joining in with a prayer gathering near you, willing to help organize one or able to offer accommodation, please see the itineray below and/or contact Derek Balsdon 01260 297609 | 07958 549146
Bill writes: 
I don't know who will read this but I am specifically writing this to Methodist Christians who are concerned about the future of our denomination. I believe we have been discussing the issues dividing us and missing the simple reason for our dilemma. We have become a mini version of our country; "us against them." This is not a conservative versus liberal issue. This is not a "we are right" and "you are wrong" problem. This is not an evangelicals against progressives fight.

"For we are not contending against flesh and blood..." We are spinning our wheels and have missed the entire reason for the conundrum. Ours is a spiritual conflict and can only be addressed corporately. The source of our division is principalities, powers, world rulers of this present darkness, spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. I am calling on our Bishops across the denomination to lead our annual conferences in praying against these principalities in the name of Jesus. Together we can take back our denomination and experience unity in the bond of love. We cannot afford to wait but rather advance in unified spiritual warfare on behalf of our beloved church.

Bill has recored several 50-second videos about the power and presence of God in the meetings of John Wesley, to watch them visit Bill Phares on YouTube
