Thursday 5 June 1766. “I am a member of the church of England but I love good men of every church, My ground is my bible, yea I am a bible bigot. I follow it in all things therefore I always use a short private prayer when I attend the public services of God, Do not you? …Is this not according to the bible. I always kneel before the Lord my maker before I pray in public…I advise every preacher connected with me, whether in England or Scotland, herein to tread in my steps. ” (The Journal of John Wesley. abridged by Christopher Idle.
