Rolling my own religion

If John Wesley felt his heart “strangely warmed” at Aldersgate, and if Fanny J. Crosby had visions of rapture bursting on her sight, I was happy for them; but I was beginning to fear (or hope) that I wasn’t cut out for that sort of thing. But I wanted very much to be a Christian. In the Gospels, Jesus just walked up to people and said, “follow me.” And they followed. That’s what I was looking for.
