How much is that now? We do more and more double-takes as meat and other grocery costs rise. Supply chain issues, labor shortages, high product demand across the U.S., and the global response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine have contributed to excessive price hikes. Inflation is hitting everyone, but low-income households are feeling the pinch even more, especially as wage increases for many workers fail to keep up with inflation. Is gratitude increasingly difficult to express? As we deal with sticker shock, everybody agrees the price we most prefer is FREE! Everybody wants free!

A lot of the services we depend on are free. Companies, though, are trying to figure out how to start charging. But once we get used to free, its tough to accept the idea we need to pay now! Researcher Russ Roberts of George Mason University even found that many WWII vets were still upset when they recalled when the Red Cross stopped offering free donuts. Get the rest of that story and more this week as we explore the Good News from the prophet Jeremiah and Jesus. Invite a friend because it will be a Gratitude Free-For-All at Cold Spring Church!

Our lyric video Open the Eyes of My Heart, Lord, can be everyone’s prayer, especially those seeking to be open to God’s grace to nurture a spirit of gratitude. As the world we live in gets more complex and distracting, we need to cling to God’s saving presence in Christ and ask that the eyes of our hearts would be open to see the beauty of life.

The closing hymn Live Into Hope was written for the United Presbyterian Women’s National Meeting in July 1976 because the team planning worship could not find a suitable melody for the reading from Luke 4:16-20. Jane Parker Huber wrote the words with this lively 18th century tune in mind. 

Whatever your religious affiliation, or none at all, we all hear Jesus say, “Come to me all who are overburdened, and find rest for your soul!” Everyone is welcome at Cold Spring Church. Yes, everyone!

Enjoy sitting with others from greater Cape May as we worship together. We simplified our service and made it even easier to participate, with our Worship Guide and lyric videos displayed on a large screen.
