Pastor Injured in Dirt Bike Accident During Church ServiceJuly 22, 2008

KOKOMO, Ind. (AP) ? A pastor brought out a dirt bike during a church service to demonstrate the concept of unity. Now he's demonstrating the concept of healing.

Jeff Harlow, the senior pastor at Crossroads Community Church, broke his wrist when he lost control of the motorcycle at the start of Sunday's second service, driving off a 5-foot platform and into the vacant first row of seats. He underwent surgery on the wrist Monday.

"Jeff has already laughed a lot, so he's OK. I think his pride was bruised," said his wife, Becky.

Becky Harlow said her husband had recently attended a motorcycle race in Buchanan, Mich.

"He had this idea that he would bring this bike out onstage and show people how the rider would become one with the bike," she told the Kokomo Tribune. "He was going to just sit on it and drive it out. He was just walking the dirt bike out onstage and somehow it got away from him. It was not intended."

No one else was hurt.

Jeff Harlow had performed the demonstration at earlier services Saturday night and Sunday morning without incident.

Senstionalism is alive and well.

Well, I guess when you can't preach the Word of God faithfully (because you are not living it or it is not exciting enough), then you have to keep coming up with new ways to entertain the crowd (yes, crowd - it certainly is not a church!).

Sounds like my preacher. Except he didn't crash.

Just incase anyone was wanting to jab at that... a couple church members gave him a bike as a gift and put it on the pulpit. He just figured the best way to get it down was to ride down the steps.
