How Not to Ride a Bicycle

Roy Halberg, pastor of Grace Fellowship, a Grace Brethren church in Alta Loma, Calif., is recovering from a bicycle mishap on Tuesday, January 29 while at the Southwest Focus Retreat at Rancho Capistrano, Calif. He and Ed Trenner, associate pastor at Grace Church, a Grace Brethren church in Orange, Calif., were taking a morning ride.

To avoid being hit by a car, the two collided. As Roy tells it, "I hit my hip, knee, and rib cage and Ed landed on his face. He had several deep lacerations on his face and had two chipped teeth repaired yesterday afternoon."

Roy has a hairline fracture on his pelvic bone but will not need additional surgery. He's anticipating being released from the hospital by Saturday afternoon. He's currently in San Dimas Community Hospital, room 420.

Ed returned to the Focus Retreat, which concluded this morning (Wednesday).

"God is good," says Roy. "It could have been a lot worse."
