A Mississippi pastor took his sermon to fresh heights Sunday when, to the surprise of his congregants, he glided into the pulpit with the help of a zip line.
Video of the Rev Bartholomew Orr’s heavenly entrance has thrust him into social media stardom as well as even earned him the nickname the “Flying Pastorr,” according to the American media.
Orr’s impressive stunt was apparently meant to illustrate the unexpected nature of Jesus Christ’s second coming.
“Are you ready for his return?” he asked the roomful of parishioners at Brown Missionary Baptist Church as he sailed in coming from the sanctuary’s mezzanine.
The dramatic feat drew raucous laughter as well as applause coming from the shocked churchgoers down below.
“Jesus Christ comes again, as well as every eye will see him when he come again,” Orr continues as he’s lowered onto the stage.
This kind of wasn’t long before clips of the stunt, taken coming from several angles, flooded social media. Orr, who has been head pastor at the church since 1989, received some blowback for his creativity, however, coming from critics who claimed his entrance was too over the top. Others argued the use of the lift was a complete waste of time as well as money.
Orr responded to the criticism a YouTube video explaining in which no church funds were used to pull off his grand entrance. In fact, he said, the lift has been used for years as part of the church’s annual Christmas productions.
inside end, the pastor said he hoped his stunt helped spread the Christian gospel.
“There is actually a bigger picture, as well as in which is actually Christ is actually returning soon,” Orr said. “as well as just as Christ’s return is actually going to be unexpected, my flying in This kind of morning was unexpected. nevertheless we must be ready.”
