Christ the King

Community Presbyterian lost its beloved Sexton this week. It was a shock to all of us. He had been part of the church since he was a youngster, and it seems so strange to see his pew seat empty. As we planned a memorial service for him, we extended an offer to the community to join with us in our grief. To our great surprise, the church was filled to the balcony.

How could one so quiet and unassuming have touched so many lives? Don't you need to have been a community leader, a doer of great things, to be mourned by masses of people? How could quiet John Bell have made such a stir in the community?

Since today is Christ the King Sunday, it gives us a chance to think of another humble servant -- Jesus of Nazareth -- and to meditate on the power of the servant life. Come join the congregation of Community Presbyterian and the friends and family of John Bell Judd for this week's sermon, Christ the King, by clicking here.

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
