We hosted our 4th annual Blessing of the Bikes. CMA (Christian Motorcycle Association) comes to our church, provides special music and carries out the blessing.
The word blessed comes from the German word Blesaud, meaning “to cover”. The blessing we ask for is to be covered by God’s care.
This service always brings a crowd to our church. The motorcycle culture is open to spiritual truth. I believe this is because they have seen the dark side of humanity, have tried the sensual and have come away wanting something better, something more real than that which the senses provide. Most of them truly have been there and done that.
I love to preach to this group. They really listen.
If only the church could grasp that every Sunday can be a blessing Sunday if we would seek to touch folks not with the fads of our culture but with the genuine nature of our faith.
Baptist connected. If you would like to have a Blessing of the Bikes at the church you serve, let me know and I will help you make it happen.
