In honor of a new season of Arrested Development, I thought it was a perfect time to talk about John Wesley’s childhood. John almost died in a house fire when he was 5. As an adult, he would look back on this incident and refer to himself as “a brand plucked from the burning” (Zech 3:2; Amos 4:11). Susanna Wesley (portrayed here by Lucille Bluth) home-schooled her kids hardcore. When you have 8ish kids, you put the holy fear of God in them as soon as they leave the womb by making them learn the Greek alphabet and be anti-Catholic. But for real, Susanna was awesome.
In retrospect, I hope my comic strip isn’t as difficult to understand as AD Season 4.
