A United Methodist pastor urged some 800 attendees of the National Gathering of United Methodist Men to become like the mighty men of David. The Rev. Shane Bishop, pastor of Christ United Methodist Church in Fairview Heights, Ill, told the July 12-14 quadrennial meeting at Belmont University, “Men don’t become great because they expect God to do what God expects men to do. Stop waiting on your preacher. Get off the sidelines and change the world.”
