Dust, Water and Seed

Have you ever heard the term "Cafeteria Christian"? These are folks that take a bit of this and a bit of that and try to construct a relationship with God from their pickings. They are usually the ones who will assure you that all churches teach the same thing, so it doesn't matter which church you go to. The stopper for me was a remark by Huston Smith, "If you wish to produce water, better to dig one well 60 feet deep than ten wells 6 feet deep."

What if you chose your church with the same care as you chose your spouse? Or, to look at it from the other side, what if you chose your spouse by investigating whether he or she had a good youth program and a good sounding choir, and a devastatingly handsome preacher? Choosing a spouse means digging deeply into the relationship to determine if this person is "the one". Why should church membership be undertaken any more lightly? Come join the congregation of Community Presbyterian church of Bellefonte, Ky for this week's sermon, "Dust, Water and Seed" by clicking on the blue text.

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
