Something's Up

On the way to church, my wife asked me what the sermon was about. I told her that I would be preaching on a differential analysis of the accounts in Matthew and Luke, with some observations upon the calendar calculations by Dionysus Exeguus. She replied, "Why can't we just have a nice sermon on the wise men coming to worship the baby Jesus?"

Why not, indeed! That's the story that makes everybody all warm and fuzzy. The question it poses to me, however, is why the good news seems to make everybody in the story cranky and, well..., murderous?

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
