A Piece of Gristle

It is hard for Americans particularly to turn their back on the common understanding that with good old American hard work, we can transform our world into Eden. The lessons of history and the teachings of the Gospels, however, offer a different view. No matter how good your intentions, you are not the Savior of the world and you cannot accomplish what you think you can. Evil is present, in our corporations who sit on money while the unemployment rate is high, in our churches which allow themselves to become so bound by their procedures that they do harm to children, in our very lives when we put our comfort and our flattering view of our goodness ahead of the needs of others. Join the congregation of Community Presbyterian Church as we examine the piece of gristle that runs through the world and each of us by clicking HERE for audio and 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
