Thursday, 12 February Church History 4: As we explore this period in the history of the Church of Irelandwe cannot ignore the social and political impact of Methodism.
Nor can we ignore its impact on the Church of Ireland.
At the same time, as we consider the wider political and social context in which the Church of Ireland found itself, we have to realise that there is a clear link connecting Bunker Hill, the Bastille and Boolavogue. And we also have to take account of the impact of the American Revolution on the Episcopal Church and the future shape of the Anglican Communion; the impact of the French Revolution on French Church, and more generally on the whole Christian Church; and, of course, the impact of the Rising on the Church in Ireland and the Church of Ireland.
Methodism Already I have made brief references to Jakob Spenner and the rise of Pietism in Germany in the late 17th century, and to Jonathan Edwards and George Whitefield and the Great Awakening in America at the beginning of the 18th century. Both these movements — the Pietists and the Great Awakening — had important influences on the Wesley brothers and the rise of Methodism later in the 18th century.
During their voyage to America, and their stay in Georgia, the Wesley brothers were deeply influenced by the Moravians, who in turn had taken on much of the teachings and experiences of the German Pietists.
But John Wesley alienated the colonists, and returned to England in Then, inWesley helped to reframe the rules of an Anglican society that met in Fetter Lane, London. We could see this as the turning point in the Evangelical Revival on this side of the Atlantic.
The Wesleys preached throughout Britain and Ireland: When John Wesley found the doors of Anglican churches closed to him, he followed the example of George Whitefield, and preached in the open.
The first Methodist Conference met inand the first Methodist circuits were organised as early as Methodism gained strong positions throughout Ireland, England and Wales, but notably made slower headway in Scotland. The break with Anglicanism came when John Wesley decided to ordain local preachers for areas in which Methodists could not receive the sacraments.
Although Wesley hoped that Methodism could stay within the boundaries of Anglicanism, and he died an Anglican priest, Methodism became a separate organisation and a separate church. The American Revolution of Although the American Revolution pre-dated the French revolution by 13 years, many of the American revolutionaries owed a lot to French thinking at the time.
This contained a strong element of religious polemic and debate. The American Declaration of Independence appeals to God as the ultimate source of justification for the liberties demanded by the authors, and the appeal to self-evident truth, in order to justify the basis of the Declaration, can be traced to Descartes.
Karl Barth observed that the Declaration of Independence represented a Calvinism gone to seed, although its principal author, Thomas Jefferson was a Deist at heart and owed much to English and French political theory.
In the Declaration, the American revolutionaries declared: That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
There, Anglicanism has been strongly influenced by a steady flow of clergy and missionaries from the Church of Ireland. Anglicans who remained in the new United States after the revolution felt isolated from the Church of England, whose bishops were unwilling or unable to provide new bishops to serve the new church.
That same year saw the consecration of Samuel Seabury by bishops from the nonjuring Episcopal Church of Scotland.What Was The Age Of Reason Of Revival And What Was The Impact On Church History.
