Do you know what time it is? Sure, your watch will tell you the time, but time itself? What is it? Time is simply a measure of distance. Time is life itself that passes along. It is not a tangible thing, time measures tangible things. \Time does not stand still. It is not a commodity to be held, set aside, or saved. Time cannot be stored. Nor can it be ignored. It cannot be spent, or lost. Time cannot be our enemy, or be “on our side.” There are no more hours in your day than in any other’s day. While we often feel pressure when “running out of time,” or impatient “waiting our time,” time is simply the unit we use to track and measure  experience, movement, and growth, that is, life Time is a way to measure our life. How does your life measure up?

This week, we celebrate God’s creative power and involvement in our lives through Jesus Christ. We begin with a hero story about Queen Esther who saved her people from the scoundrel, Haman. “For such a time as this,” Esther said, I have been put right where I am!” She decided now is the time to take a step of faith and courage.

Leaving the Queen’s story, our Scripture readings teleport us 500 years  when we will hear Jesus tell his followers not to interfere when other’s do God’s work even if they are not part of their group. In fact, we should welcome them. Everyone can live and share the Good News. With Queen Esther and the disciples of Jesus, seriously, now is the time for living! Yes, now!

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2:10).

“…That you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God” (Eph. 3:18).

We are excited to welcome to worship all who are able and comfortable in-person in our historic Red Brick Church on Sundays at 10:30 AM. Your safety, health, and wellness are our top priority. Following the guidance from the CDC and health officials, we have implemented safety protocols and designed an approximately forty-minute worship experience that will be spiritually energizing and safe for you, your family, and other worshippers.

Humans have always been mobile. Like God said, “be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth.” We certainly have. Our personal and global history bears witness to our mobility from our first crawl to walking, running, our first bike and first car. as we expand throughout our planet. We take walks on the beach or paths in the mountains. Collectively we have walked on the moon, sent spacecraft far out beyond our solar system and just this week four civilians were launched into a three-day orbit around our planet.

Jesus was always on the move, too. This week we take a walk with Jesus and his disciples when he reminds us that we must all be as children, welcoming of God’s love and welcoming of all others, too. You want to be the best? Be the servant of all. As we grow older, we are still on the move physically and mentally. The worship theme this week is no one is left behind. In what way do we stay mobile, growing and learning, spiritually?

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2:10).

“…That you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God” (Eph. 3:18).

Who are you? When asked that question you may instinctively give your name, or begin to recall the Who’s rock song, Who Are You? You may respond with the many identities you express in your life. Your citizenship, nationality, gender, personality, health status or political orientation. You may describe your faith, too, for example, I am a follower of Jesus. Who we are is connected to our many relationships, joys, passions, skills, and values at home, leisure, or work. These good responses are not “all” of who you are, but all these hint at the who of you. This week in our Old Testament reading from Psalm 116, we learn that God inclines his “ear” to us. Amazing! The God of the universe leans in and pays attention to us. God listens intently not only to our words, sighs, but lovingly understands our feelings, pains, and dreams, too. In our Gospel reading we find Jesus out of his home area and asks the people “Who am I?” Jesus “inclined his ear” towards them and invited them to be real with him, as he was with them. But what we will discover in what happened next when Peter reprimanded Jesus (!) Will help us connect the Who with the Do, because who we are is inseparable from what we do. This week at Cold Spring Church, let’s put our Who in our Do!

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2:10).

“…That you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God” (Eph. 3:18).

Where do you see faith at work? In your life? Do you see it at work in your neighborhood or in your family? Where in the world do you see faith at work? This week, we see Jesus do amazing work in the most unexpected places, and in the most unexpected ways. In our life’s map of experiences we can more clearly see how our faith and work can bring unexpected blessings.

This Labor Day weekend we will celebrate God’s work in our lives that we see most clearly as we put our faith in Jesus Christ into practice.

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2:10).

We will recognize and remember 9/11 on its 20th anniversary, Patriot Day, and reaffirm God’s presence with us in all times and places.

Gathering At the Lord’s Table 

Our in-person worshippers will be provided pre-packaged communion cups, which on-line worshippers may request by contacting the office. Or, you choose the bread. For the cup, you may use grape juice or wine, or water, remembering that Christ is the Living Water for all.

“…That you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God” (Eph. 3:18).

Rediscover God’s love for you and live your very best life in Christ!

Have you ever felt like giving up on God? Most of us have felt that way from time to time. But, if not giving up on God or our idea of God, maybe we’ve given up on religion, or have been mistreated by religious people, or the church. We may feel that too many people have lied or died or failed in the name of Christ for anyone to take Jesus’ call seriously. Yes, it’s tough to hear the simple invitation of Jesus, Follow me!, with all the noise.

When we consider those who found Jesus’ words extremely difficult to believe, we will see that we are not alone! To them (and maybe to us, too?), Jesus’ claims were just too outrageous to be taken seriously. Many people have mistaken or miscommunicated Jesus’ message entirely. Sometimes we just give up too soon. This week, we will hear a fresh expression of the Gospel from John 6:63-69 in a message titled, “Leaving So Soon?,” that will echo Joshua’s challenge to the ancient Israelites to choose wisely, even when choosing is hard. Discover, or re-discover, God’s love for YOU this Sunday. Clearly hear Jesus say to you, “Yes, it’s tough. I understand. I love you. I will never give up on you!” Let’s not leave too soon…and instead renew our commitment to really hear Jesus’ words of life and spirit!

“…That you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God” (Eph. 3:18).

Feeling stuck? Get the resources you need to get up and live your very best life in Christ!

Do you feel stuck? We all feel that way from time to time, and it’s not a good feeling! Just ask Elijah! This week we will meet Elijah in our Scripture reading from 1 Kings. He wanted clearer instructions from God and was feeling very stuck. So stuck, he crawled into a cave to sleep his uncertainty off. This week we will also discover how the crowds with Jesus were stuck trying to understand how Jesus could be the Bread of Heaven when the only heavenly bread they knew about was in a Bible story. While God has a purpose for each of us, those plans are rarely straightforward.

When we feel stuck spiritually, we need to take the steps that are the clearest to us and get moving. God understands our need for clarity and gives us the basics to take the following steps of faith as we follow the Spirit. We all need to hear God say to us right where we are, “We can do this!” We need our community to hear God speak to them, too, “We can do this!”. If you feel like you’re stuck on the bench of faith, get ready to relocate! Spiritual nourishment ahead at Cold Spring Church!

Don’t consume fast-food spirituality! Get a nutritious meal for your spirit here!

Good nutrition is essential for optimal health. Have your eating habits changed over the past eighteen months due to the pandemic? Most of us have experienced disruptions to our eating habits which have only gradually returned to normal. For some of us, we are stress-eating and snacking more often. And snacking is something Americans have been doing since the first wax paper-bagged potato chips were sold in 1922! Our poor food choices include fast food, too.

Just like we need to improve our physical eating habits, we should pay better attention to our spiritual eating habits, too. This week, Jesus cautions us about the dangers of a fast-food spirituality. That can occur when we skip the important nutrition derived from time with God in prayer, worship, with each other, and in service to others. We tend to fill our spirits with empty food that does not satisfy us, leaving us fatigued and distracted from being spiritually energized! Jesus is the bread of life! The abundant life in Christ is available to all of us. Maybe you’re looking for a sign, a direction, resources to take your next step toward improved spiritual health. You’ve come to the right place! Cold Spring Church delivers what you need to feed your spirit and give you the spiritual energy you crave!

Be filled with the Spirit and overflow with God’s love!

Politics. Religion. Business. Education. Economics. Regardless of our point of view in these any any other domain of interest, all of us from time to time can be full of it. Wanting more of it. Arguing about it. Feeling overwhelmed by it. This week at Cold Spring Church, we will discover how all of us can be full of it, too, but “filled to the measure of all the fullness of God! (Ephesians 3:19). Worship with us in our beautiful, historic, Red Brick Church, or on YouTube. Refreshing, living waters found here at Cold Spring!

Jesus didn’t come to save your soul, but so much more!

  God is in the Neighbor-Business! Not leaving us alone, Jesus came, fully human and divine, to not only save our souls, our spiritual life but to make us whole, mind, and body, too! This week at Cold Spring Church, we will rediscover what it means to be in a relationship not only with our Creator but with each other, within ourselves. Our sacred duty is to become human, wholly and genuinely human. We don’t have to remain as we are, but as God creates us to be.

“Christ’s purpose was to create in himself one new humanity out of the two, thus making peace, and in one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility” (Ephesians 2:15b-16).

Be a neighbor! Now, more than ever, our world, community, and each of us, need to re-capture what it means to be a good neighbor. And it starts with you and me as Christ transforms us in mind, body, and spirit. Remember, it’s not about getting and hoarding all God’s blessings for ourselves, our side, or our preferences. “God comforts us when we are in trouble so that we can share that same comfort with others in trouble” (2 Corinthians 1:4). Sharing comfort and hope is a great way to be a good neighbor! You belong! God lives in you by the Spirit. Now, that’s good news for all of us!

Worship Your Way! In-Person, or Online. Masks are optional for vaccinated worshippers.

We are excited to welcome to worship all who are able and comfortable in-person in our historic Red Brick Church on Sundays at 10:30 AM. Your safety, health, and wellness are our top priority. Following the guidance from the CDC and health officials, we have implemented safety protocols and designed an approximately forty-minute worship experience that will be spiritually energizing and safe for you, your family, and other worshippers.
