The Passion

Today is Palm Sunday, the beginning of Holy Week. Jesus arrives in Jerusalem to the acclaim of the crowds but leaves in quite a different way. A couple of years ago I said that preaching on Holy Week is like holding a seminar on the three little pigs -- we have heard the story so often that it takes on a gloss of "Once Upon a Time". We need to hear the story of the Passion, and I elected to read it from a paraphrase, "The Message". Listen for the word of God in this reading from Mark.

Join the congregation of Community Presbyterian Church of Bellefonte, Ky. for this week's sermon, The Passion 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
