The rapid growth of Promise Keepers, the Christian movement for men featured in the front-page article ''Christian Group Aims to Reshape the Male Mold,'' July 5, is an expression of moral and spiritual vitality in American society today.
The movement's exclusion of women is hard to justify, however. The aims of Promise Keepers - which include maintaining high moral standards, building strong marriages, and supporting church - are equally relevant to women. Christianity requires men and women to work together in living and sharing the gospel of Christ Jesus.
