Are you ready to fly?! Well, you’ll need to break a few eggs first. Just ask Jesus about the time he went to a hometown reunion of sorts. It didn’t go well. Not at all. In this week’s Gospel reading, we will discover why it’s O.K. to break a few eggs if it means breaking free. The religious leaders became angry when Jesus said he fulfilled the Messianic promise and proclaimed freedom not only to the religious locals but to everyone, outsiders, too. What a mess. Impossible!, Prohibited!, they cried. Madness! Jesus was all in! You might say that Jesus wants to break a few of your eggs, too, setting you free! Find out how to fly with Jesus this week at Cold Spring Church!

Music Preview

Our music video is Chris Tomlinson’s Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone). After a chance encounter on a plane, a producer asked Chris to write music for his upcoming Amazing Grace movie. The movie is about William Wilberforce’s work to abolish slavery in Europe. He wrote a chorus, My Chains Are Gone, to the well-loved traditional hymn. Chris says he never thought his version would be so popular in churches worldwide. We close today with Shine, Jesus Shine, echoing today’s Gospel, “This is God’s time to shine!”

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

Due to the alarming increase in cases of COVID-19 in Cape May County, masks are again required, even for fully vaccinated worshippers.

As we celebrate the Light of Christ, are you looking for something extraordinary? Seeking a miracle? Maybe you’ve been searching for a bright sign of hope. Sure, we all have from time to time, and these uncertain times in which we live are the right times for a spiritual indicator! This week, we will meet Jesus at a wedding where Jesus amazes everyone with an unexpected sign. Jesus transforms ordinary water into fantastic wine! Wow! Jesus offers a sign of blessing and hope for you! Find out how you can live an amazing life in Christ! Signs of hope ahead!

Music Preview

We begin worship with the stirring, All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name. This 18th-century text celebrating the sovereignty of Christ has been through several expansions and contractions before reaching its present form. It is set here to the oldest American hymn tune in continuous use since first published in 1793, which was written for it. We will enjoy beautiful music during the several prayerful reflections times. We will be sent out to serve our community by singing Speak O Lord. Echoing the wisdom of Mary who instructed the disciples to “do what Jesus says,” we will listen as Christ renew our minds and spirits for the hopeful year ahead!

Three Kings Sunday Worship Preview

We are a star-struck culture. Those that dominate social media and dictate popular styles and attitudes are called stars. Entertainers, scientists, YouTubers, athletes, tech giants, and even everyday heroes inspire us to be our best. Since the pandemic began, more and more people have also sought comfort and guidance from the cosmic stars as we consult birth charts, astrologers, and psychics. We seek light to lead us out of the coronavirus chaos and the isolation and daily constraints, the fear and uncertainty, and COVID-19’s sickness and death. This week, we focus on the Star, the Bright and Morning Star, the Light of the World, which brings real hope and a future.

Christmastide concludes with the last day of the Twelve Days of Christmas. In the season of Light, we call Epiphany, and we travel with the stargazing Magi who followed the Jesus Star. It was a very bright moving star that came to a rest just above the spot where Jesus lay. Their long journey, likely from modern-day Iraq, led to a house in Nazareth, not a manger in Bethlehem as is often depicted on Christmas cards. And when they saw Jesus, they were overjoyed!

What star shines brightest for you on this new year’s horizon? Where does that star lead you? What gifts will you bring into the year? Follow the Jesus star. It is the only one that will take you home in God’s emerging future of hope. It is the only one that will make you a rising star and not a shooting star. Find out how to follow the Jesus Star this week at Cold Spring Church.

Music Preview

We will sing the traditional carol, We Three Kings, which will stir our spirits this week. as our worship begins and after the message.  stir our spirits this week, inviting us to join them on their stargazing journey. Despite the well-loved title, the Scripture identifies the gift-bearing visitors as “magi” meaning scholars, not kings. And there were three gifts, but the actual number of scholars is unspecified. Yet, this carol remains our favorite!

The scholars did indeed bring three gifts – gold, frankincense, and myrrh. These gifts are traditionally interpreted to acknowledge Jesus as the King, God, and a foreshadowing of Jesus’ sacrifice, respectively, as depicted in the hymn. Herod slaughtered two-year-olds and younger boys suggesting that Jesus could have been up to two years of age when the gifts were presented to him. Jesus’ family would’ve living in a house by the time the magi arrived. The magi offered their best to Jesus, and we can be inspired to do the same, today.

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