Pastor Jeff Harlow broke his wrist Sunday, when he lost control of a motorcycle he was using during an object lesson, and road it off the dias into an empty first row of seats. He gave the sermon, One - May We Be One - Honor One Another, twice Sunday. The first sermon went off without a hitch, but Darwin caught up with him during the second one.
Harlow had never ridden a motorcycle before and practiced in the parking lot the day before. In his first sermon, he said,
I was trying to feel my way around the parking lot yesterday, hit second gear, and popped a wheelie, and didn't intend to. Didn't know how to get it back down after I had got it up.That's what she said.
Harlow will need surgery to repair his wrist. No one else was hurth.
Harlow's wife, Becky, commented,
He had this idea that he would bring this bike out onstage and show people how the rider would become one with the bike.At this point his wife is probably just as glad he used a motorcycle to illustrate human unity, rather than her.
