The Occult

"The Occult" used to mean Ouija boards and scary stuff at night. Now it apparently means werewolves and vampires that glitter in the sunlight instead of falling to pieces as a proper vampire is supposed to do. We hear a lot of concern about kids getting wound up in "The Occult", and a lot of concern about the Harry Potter stories. I'm not much bothered by Harry Potter. I think the books have excellent messages.

There *is* an occult, though. God's actions in His Creation are often occult -- hidden and ambiguous. Join the congregations of the Chapel of St. Starbuck's and Community Presbyterian church of Bellefonte for this week's sermon from Exodus 24:12-18 and Matthew 17:1-9, The Occult, by clicking on any 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
