Knock Knock

Sometimes it seems that the Gospel of Jesus Christ goes out into the world, and all you get back are the sounds of crickets. The world is such a consuming, dangerous, interesting, distracting place that it's hard to devote the time necessary to actually hear and react to the Gospel. Yet, in any time and place, there seem always to be a group of people, a remnant, whose involvement with the world gets interrupted by the Gospel -- who do really crazy things because they can conceive of no alternative. They're sort of the remnant. This week, we read from Revelation and John about the "flock" of Jesus. Spend some time with the joint congregations of the Chapel of St. Starbuck's and Community Presbyterian Church for this week's sermon, Knock Knock.

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
