I guess it is time we start calling Glenn Beck “Reverend.” Who would have ever believed that the second largest gathering of Christians in the history of Washington DC would be initiated by a Mormon talk-show host? The Promise Keepers “Stand in the Gap” event of 1997 was the only thing that could top what Beck pulled off.
Before I get too deep into my thoughts let me lament the lost opportunity of The Promise Keepers.
It was the single greatest gathering of Christian men in the history of America. Nearly two million men traveled to DC in 1997. It was the apex of that organization. From that point on, PK has been on a downward slide.
I love Coach McCartney and his vision of Godly men and the impact that they could have on this nation. Just like Glenn Beck, Coach Mac tapped into a pulsating artery in the American blood system. I have often wondered where America would be today if PK had urged Christian men to live out a more masculine form of Christianity.
