ST. LOUIS, Missouri (AP) -- Church services at Bayless Baptist Church were more than a little hair-raising over the weekend.

The Rev. Ron Shrum sported hair that was spiked, and dyed red and blue.

To Shrum, 65, it was a small price to pay for keeping his word to the church's youngsters, making good on a promise to relinquish control of his fading locks if more than 400 people attended Sunday school a week earlier. All told, 409 turned out.

So early Sunday morning, Nathan Beck, 15, and his sister Caitlin Beck, 17, played hairdresser on Shrum and went with the "Liberty Spikes" look -- one side of the head bright red, the other blue.

No worries, reverend.
