John Wesley in Spanish Florida (81312-IC-¶1712.2)

Amend The Book of Discipline of the United Methodist Church to read -- Section XI. General Commission on Archives and History, ¶1712 -- Historic Sites and Heritage Landmarks -- 2.  Present Heritage Landmarks -- John Wesley's American Parish, which was also located in Spanish Florida, Savannah, GA

Rationale

“The world is my parish,” said John Wesley, exposed to Atlantic Zone exploration and colonization in Georgia and Spanish Florida.  This is significant and should be reflected in the discipline.  Wesley in Spanish Florida may transform our understanding about his conversion and open a path for those seeking a connection.
