Pastor demonstrates that "shit happens"

The senior pastor of Crossroads Community Church in Kokomo, Indiana was trying to give some sort of lesson on how to be "one" with his motorcycle . . . I assume to illustrate how one needs to be "one with god" (I have heard these types of sermons before.) Well, he didn't exactly become "one" with his bike and gave a very good example about how his god was not there for him, and there is no one to become "one" with. We each are on our own, and shit happens because of things we cannot control, or because we do something idiotic, as did Pastor Jeff here:

Pastor gets into motorcycle crash -- during service

KOKOMO, Ind. - 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.

This seems to be a thing with redneck pastors...lookie here at youth pastor David Few.
