The Companion to the Book of Common Worship reminds us that:

Unlike other festivals in the church’s liturgical calendar, Trinity Sunday centers on a doctrine of the church, rather than an event. It celebrates the unfathomable mystery of God’s being as Holy Trinity. It is a day of adoration and praise of the one, eternal, incomprehensible God.

Those words, "unfathomable" and "Trinity" and "one" and "eternal" and "incomprehensible" are big church words we sometimes throw around without much thought for their meaning. Such was the case this week when an earnest young man came to the Chapel of St. Starbuck to lecture the Archbishop on Creation. Strangely, the Sexton remained unimpressed.

Join the congregations of the Chapel of St. Starbuck, and Community Presbyterian Church of Bellefonte, Ky for our sermon from Genesis 1 titled "Words", by clicking on the title.

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
