WATCH: Pastor Goes Viral for High-Flying Sermon in MS Church
A pastor in Mississippi is going viral after he took his sermon to new heights over the weekend.
Rev. Bartholomew Orr, from Brown Baptist Church in the city of Southaven, was seen "flying" above his congregation on Sunday.
The senior pastor dropped in via suspension wire, much to the delight of those in attendance.
One video of the high-flying sermon has been viewed on Facebook more than two million times.
According to FOX 13, the stunt was met with criticism online, prompting the pastor to respond in a video.
Many on social media objected, however, claiming Orr was overshadowing the sermon's true message.
He said that no matter what reaction his sermon received, he was happy that the gospel was being shared.
The Memphis Commercial Appeal reported that Orr's stunt was done in order to show people how to be a "digital disciple."
He also said that he came up with the idea after he saw the suspension wires that were part of the church's holiday production on the balcony.
