Lizard Brains

When we're hurt by someone else's malice, we tend to think we are empowered to "Get Even" by doing whatever it takes to hurt them back. That's the limbic system of our brains -- the so-called 'lizard brain' speaking. Our role as Christians is to show the world that it is possible to put the lizard brain to sleep and to show to the world our true colors as the holders of God's Divine breath, for Genesis tells us we are composed only of dirt and the breath of God. Join the congregation of Community Presbyterian Church of Bellefonte as we talk about a recent kerfuffle at the Chapel of St. Starbuck's over America's use of civilians to pilot unmanned drones in Afghanistan in our sermon this week, Lizard Brains.

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
