Birds on a Wire

We live in a time in which we know a great deal about the structure of the universe. We can squint back to the very beginning of time. We can perceive atoms and their interactions. We even know what causes the fizz in bicarbonate of soda. The one thing we have turned our backs on is the foundation upon which all the magnificence of the universe sits. We in the Christian tradition understand this foundational Alpha and Omega to be God. In popular imagination, though, speculating about God seems somehow fantasy-like. I can't think so. I think we are like birds, hunkered down upon a power line, unaware of the power and potential coursing beneath our feet. Come join the congregation of Community Presbyterian Church of Bellefonte and see how Hamlet, his friend Horatio, and cow pats come together in our sermon, "Birds on a Wire" by clicking HERE for audio or HERE for 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
