WASHINGTON (AP) The United Methodist Men organization has honored President Bush for his statements of faith and national call to prayer following the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
Bush, a member of the denomination, was named to the Society of John Wesley Fellows on Dec. 17, according to United Methodist News Service.
The idea for presenting the award to Bush came from members who wanted to thank the president for his leadership after the attacks.
''The John Wesley Award is given to clergy, laymen and laywomen who have demonstrated their commitment to Christ and their understanding that this faith affects every aspect of their daily life,'' said the Rev. Joe Harris of the Commission on United Methodist Men in Nashville, Tenn.
