The Rev. Sandy Gess:
I find much in common from our faith tradition with the Occupy Movement. And, as an active participant and organizer with the Interfaith Tent @ Oakland, I draw inspiration from the Methodist tradition and our founder, John Wesley: â€œThe world is my parish.â€
Wesley faced similar challenges as he responded to the crying needs of those affected by the Industrial Revolution and by what William Blake condemned as â€œsatanic mills.â€ Wesley worked tirelessly to create a world that worked for everyone, not just the wealthiest.
