Pastor Draws Record Crowd at Easter, Gets a Tattoo

A promise is a promise:  So when First Presbyterian Church in Eustis, Florida, hit record attendance on Easter Sunday, the pastor kept his commitment.  He got a tattoo.

Reverend Leon Bloder had promised his congregation that if they’d all come to church, he’d cut his hair and have the church’s logo tattooed onto his body.  So with a little help from their friends at the small church next door, who walked on over to help fill the seats, First Presbyterian reached a total of 850 attendees.

And Rev. Bloder kept his part of the deal.  Here he is on Thursday afternoon, submitting to the needle at the local tattoo parlor.
