Jesus told Martha, "“Martha, Martha, you are worried and distracted by many things; there is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part, which will not be taken away from her.” The word translated as "distracted" carries the connotation of being stretched or pulled in many directions. If that isn't a spot-on description of today's world, I don't know what is. Join the Congregation of Community Presbyterian Church for this week's sermon, "Welcome" by clicking 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 http://communitypresbyterian.org.
