                   Wesley, Edwards and Whitefield were part of the Great Awakening in the 1730's.
                                    We are in need of such an awakening today. It is hoped their messages
                                     will resonate and awaken us in our Post-modern culture. Whitefield
                                     is buried in Newburyport, MA about 12 miles from Gordon College.
