Circuit Riders, Camp Meetings and the Allure of Comfort

This is a sermon I preached about a month ago now.  Intrigued?  Want more?  There's a great (and very readable) book on this part of methodist history called Taking Heaven by Storm: Methodism and the Rise of Popular Christianity in America.

FYI, I am preaching this upcoming sunday (9/25/11) at our 9:15 sanctuary worship service... look forward to seeing you there.
