"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 http://communitypresbyterian.org.
