In terms of serving the poor, I think Wesley used transformational thinking in that the churches were not providing health and wellness measures. Wesley believed that providing remedies for those who could not afford doctors was serving the poor as required by God. The notion of the serving poor as a work of the church was not new to Wesley, but making it mandatory for Methodists was new. For most it was an option. For Wesley it was a necessity. – quote by Liz Wiggins, DMin in Transformational Leadership, 7/24/17.
