It’s the End of the World, Do I Feel Fine?

The day of the Lord is at hand. Br. Wesley shows how the grace of the Sun of Righteousness is working behind the scenes of history in ways and in people we would not expect. He uses the following quotes from Flannery O'Conner's Revelation to illuminate his point: (Girl in the waiting room to Mrs Turpin): 'Go back to hell where you came from, you old wart hog.' (Mrs Turpin's vision of the Day of the Lord): 'Upon it a vast horde of souls were tumbling toward heaven. There were whole companies of white trash, clean for the first time in their lives...battalions of freaks and lunatics shouting and clapping and leaping like frogs. And bringing up the end of the procession was a tribe of people....They were marching behind the others with great dignity....Yet she could see by their shocked and altered faces even their virtues were being burned away.
