The Pastor's Dream

Today's sermon brings to a close the walk we took with the Disciples of Jesus as they entered Jerusalem through the east gate to face the forces of Rome entering through the west gate. What is the significance of these two entries -- military might, force and violence on the west side of the city, some guy on a donkey on the east side? These are our two life courses laid out before us. When we are frightened or angry about crime, we turn to the west gate. "Hanging's too good for them", we cry. "Fill the prisons so that we can feel safe in our homes", we shout with those at the west gate. But at the east gate is some guy on a donkey, and he has a different message. Join the congregation of Community Presbyterian Church of Bellefonte, KY for our sermon from Acts 10:34-43 and Matthew 28:1-10, The Pastor's Dream, by clicking on any of 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
