St. Giles in the Fields Church in London has two pulpits. There is the larger one, quite central to the altar and chancel setting.
Then there is this one, moved to the church from a former chapel nearby. The inscription tells who preached from this pulpit -- John and Charles Wesley, those rebel Anglicans who started the Methodist movement.
Ah, evidence of the Wesleys, centuries later, in an obscure corner of London Town. How their influence has gone beyond a simple wood pulpit in a chapel.
