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: “The world is my parish.”

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 “satanic mills.” Wesley worked tirelessly to create a world that worked for everyone, not just the wealthiest.
