Jack Shitama is the Executive Director of Pecometh Camp & Retreat Ministries in Maryland. He says in a recent blog: “Both the spiritual life and leadership are like riding a bike.

Shitama goes on to note, “John Wesley, founder of the Methodist movement was a paragon of habits. The term ‘Methodist’ was a pejorative coined by those who mocked John, his brother Charles, and others in the Holy Club at Oxford as ‘methodical’ in their spiritual practices.
