Rode the motorcycle to Church

About once a year, Cliff and I attend this church, a fifteen-minute drive from our house.  I like it because they are so casual there.  It's OK if you want to dress up, but most folks there do not.  And the Harley riders are present in leather vests, sporting their tattoos and long hair, just as you'd expect.

I've known the preacher, Bob, for years.  He used to attend the same Church I did, back when he simply had a motorcycle ministry.  He has a great sense of humor, and goes on longer that most preachers these days, but he holds my attention.  The man has always seemed to have a genuine love and concern for people.

I wish I'd taken time to read the whole story about the Harley that sits inside the vestibule.  It's right on the wall by the bike.

I like down to earth, everybody welcome churches. After all that is what church should be about. Paula

Next time, take the time and pass the story along -- this sounds like just a perfect place to stop and pray.

This is different! A Harley in church? I like it! The Harley I mean. That machine is one nicely dressed bike when bikes were bikes. Amen

A church is a church is a church, right? Who cares about the Harley? Sounds like "fun" and glad you do it.

what a neat church and story about the motorcycle (I read your last entry first); I like casual churches like this; we are attending one that meets in a high school gym and casual clothes is the order of the day, but the Word is being preached there and the Lord is working there. Seems like you had a nice day all around and didn't have to cook dinner two days in a row - always a hit with me :)

betty
