Pulling up in front of a loading zone, the sign read: NO IDLING. A car running at idle doesn’t accomplish anything worthwhile. Idling is a wait state between off and on. Idling a traditional gas vehicle not only needlessly consumes fuel but creates noxious fumes for those walking nearby. Electrics, hybrids, and most newer vehicles are intelligent and automatically stop the engine when idle. Even cars know it’s best to get energized and move forward!

This week, our message from John 9 and 2 Thessalonians 3 will invite us to examine the status quo and consider where we are. Is there anyone who hasn’t gotten weary of doing good? Found yourself stuck in idle? Get your faith in gear this week, and with the spiritual fuel you need. Not to “work harder,” but love more, trust more, serve more, and feel more engaged in doing good. No idling. Do good!

We begin with our Fall countdown, setting the theme for our worship experience today. Accompanied by Jayne McDonough, Barbara Cain will sing A Man Who Could Not See, a hymn by Carolyn Winfrey Gillette based on the Gospel reading, John 9. Following the message, we will enjoy an energetic music lyric video For Such a Time As This based on Queen Esther’s courageous affirmation of God’s call to her from Esther 4. Our sending hymn is The Church of Christ in Every Age. The hymn writer Fred Pratt Green was ordained a British Methodist Minister in 1924 and didn’t turn to hymn writing until retirement from active ministry. Green’s hymns reflect his concern with social issues. Green composed The Church of Christ in Every Age in 1969, a time of social unrest not unlike today. Published at first under the heading of “The Caring Church,” it has earned a place in many hymnals.

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.
