Kokomo pastor crashes motorcycle in church
I heard this one on NPR during the half hour 'return' that they do, usually pointing out some short story about the crazy things people do. A pastor wanted to illustrate unity by showing his oneness with his dirt bike. And the thing got away from him during the third worship service in which he had used this unique illustration. Turned out no one was injured because, as in most congregations, attendees were seated a few rows back from the front. The pastor injured his wrist, some front pews, and probably his pride but not the opinion of his congregation. Read some of the comments below the article.
I guess it was a good thing he wasn't a wood-chopping enthusiast or a race car driver.
