Man who rode horse into church seeks forgiveness

Posted:

LIBERTY, Ky. (AP) - Harold Goode's most recent visit to a Casey County church was more humble than his first.

WLEX-TV reported Goode stood before the congregation of Ellisburg Baptist Church on Sunday to ask for forgiveness.

In 2010, Goode rode into the church on horseback in the middle of a sermon, armed with a gun and drunk. The pastor called police and Goode was arrested.

On Sunday, Goode told church members he asked the Lord for forgiveness and pleaded for theirs as well.

The pastor said church members accepted Goode's apology and he believes Goode might join the congregation.
