Wesley's Desire to Remain

Wesley wanted Methodists to stay in the Church of England, but the American Revolution put him on the spot when priests returned to England. He had little choice but approve lay preachers to administer communion, else they break off themselves. This was an unintended step toward schism he could not avoid. The situation does seem relevant today. Those who demand a New Morality apparently will never be satisfied with the Commandments our Methodist way of life is founded on.
