Today we celebrate both the 7th Sunday of Easter and the Ascension of Our Lord. Ascension Day falls 40 days after Easter Sunday, which was last Thursday. Jesus leaves his disciples, but they stay - as we do - to carry on his misison of showing God's love to the world.
Join us for thie 6th Sunday in the season of Easter - May 17, 2020. Jesus knows his leaving will bring anxiety, stress, and even some fear to his disciples, but promises to send "another Advocate" - the Spirit - to lead them in the way of love and hope. We live in faith with that same hope, that even when we can't be with Jesus or him with us, we still live in love and hope, guided by the Holy Spirit.
Watch this video and meditate on the cross of Christ during Easter Vigil, which lasts from the end of Good Friday worship until the beginning of Easter morning worship. Free free to stop, rewind, and re-watch as many times as you like. Pray for the church and its members (local and global), for coummunities and all peoples (local and global), and especially for any in special need.
Gather with your household and worship together. We will celebrate Holy Communion during this time together, and we invite you all to participate. You may want to prepare some bread or crackers and some wine or juice to use at that point in the worship and share with all those worshiping with you. (This link takes you to the revised video, including sermon and communion.)
