Too soon smart; too late wise

There is a difference between knowledge and wisdom. Knowledge means that you have the skills to do something potentially stupid, if not fatal. Wisdom means that you have better sense than to do that. Knowledge comes from books. Wisdom come through culture, and for millenia it has been passed from one generation to the next in the form of story. We have lost, says Joseph Campbell, the language of the spirit which has for time out of mind informed us the ways of wisdom.

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
