    This is one for the books had a streaker run through the stage during worship this morning LOL!
    Been playing in Pentecostal services for decades this one was a first!
    Photo is not shopped it's a frame from my video camera and this mornings service. I posted one internationally where the culprit was blurred but YE HAW made for an interesting service ! And YES we were live streaming at the time and it went out! Who says a Sunday morning service in CHURCH has to be boring? LOL!!

    Didn't come that way LOL. Boat load of visitors in service plus live streaming and the pastor is out of town with his sick daughter. Young guy was a visitor and he got all excited after one of the elders had talked about how David praised with all his might when they brought the Arc back so the guy takes it literately and suddenly strips to his boxers and socks in the service and runs cross the stage. Trust me it was rather entertaining LOL! The ushers and elders handled it well he was back in service at the end and fully clothed. IMO it was handled very well by the staff. Church is supposed to be a hospital for those sick and in need and today we acted like one. Freaky yes but no one panicked we treated the guy with respect let him know that while what what he did was out of line he is welcome there anytime ( as long as he stays clothed in service!).
    Had a really good pretty normal worship set

    Then at the end went off the reservation into this unplanned old traditional Pentecostal song and ---.

    Yep got a little instruction and hope he sticks around as long as he stays clothed!
    Seriously as screwed up as society is right now we better be ready to deal with things like this. Are seeing a steady stream suddenly of visitors at our church who are looking for reality some coming from environments that are shall we say different. I'm actually encouraged by this. In particular about how everyone reacted to it. No one freaked out the elders handled it but didn't just go off on him and throw him out was impressed. They tried to get to him and reach him not just throw him out and throw him away and that was REALLY encouraging!

    I said "Don't look Ethel, but it was too late. She already got a free shot!"

    Glad it all worked out. Must have been really surprising.

    Waaay back when I was at university, I worked my way through being a university cop. Our campus has a (regionally) famous large chapel. Every year there were a series of large Christmas services before the students went home for Christmas break. One year, I was on duty during one of the services. I got a call about indecent exposure during the service. Sure enough, I got there and the complainant points out a guy on the end of a pew. I walk up, and he is performing an act of self gratification in the middle of the (packed) service.

    When I told him to arrange himself properly, he complied and I escorted him out of the service via the nearest exit. I ended up having to transport him to the regional mental health care facility (about 6 miles from the campus). We got him checked in; I thought that better than the charge that we would have had to brought against the kid, who was obviously not thinking his best. Luckily, the complainant was also OK with that adjudication.

    AGREED! Pastor was out when it happened and this Sunday he after we shut the live stream down had a chat with the body about what happened. The young guy is still there and we are working with him guidelines were discussed on what to do if anything happens like that again and overall it was very positive. Glad I am where I am most places would have freaked then just threw the guy out we didn't and it was very impressive!
    Services are more an more free and we have regular visitors now so things are looking up!
    From Sunday

    I looked at Ascension's frozen-frame shot just to be sure. I even sent it to law enforcement friends for...enhancement.

    And no, it's not GoldieLocks

    Are we sure about that?

    I'm not fully convinced. After all, didn't he say
    he was stripping down his rig?

    If there's a guy running naked through church -- with a Martin Acoustic low-strung on his shoulder... maybe that's me.

    I'd have a cool cowboy hat on regardless.
