Mythin' Around

The notion of at-one-ment with the creator of the Universe should scare us silly, but that is what Christians are offered. I don't know how often, however, we think about what that means. Joseph Campbell, the great mythologist, spent his lifetime studying the stories we tell one another as a way to view our collective wisdom. Modern people seem to have gone off without their connection to the wisdom of life while in pursuit of the Enlightenment. Campbell suggests we should reconnect with that, and I think he's right. Let's look at the Scriptures through Campbell's eyes and see what we might find in our sermon Mythin' Around.

Community Presbyterian Church of Bellefonte, Kentucky, was built on the casting floor of a 19th Century iron blast furnace. We use "The Casting Floor" as an image for the power of the Spirit to form us. Visit us at
