I spent many a happy hour as a child in the Capital Theater, watching Westerns. It was a simple sort of world portrayed. The bad guys did bad stuff because wardrobe had issued them black hats; the good guys blew the bad guys down at high noon because that's what they do, and the townspeople swooned in gratitude.

We live in a world shaped by those westerns -- a world where people believe they are called to violently expunge people who believe differently than they from creation. Where in the world did we ever get the idea that what someone else believes is any of our business? Join us for this week's sermon, "Hoppy" 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
