Today’s Readings: Acts 1:1-11, Luke 24:44-53
“So stay here in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.” Luke 24:49
Happy Ascension Day! On Sunday we’ll mark the Ascension, the moment the risen Christ took off, after those forty days spent with the apostles after that first Easter. Luke says in Acts, “As they were watching, Jesus was lifted up, and a cloud took him out of their sight.” Wow. That would have been something to see.
But as they are staring up after Jesus, they are accosted by a couple of angelic figures, who challenge them to stop looking up, and to get busy with the tasks on the ground. There’s work to do. There’s a life to live. Here on the ground. Stay grounded!
That’s our job as we deal with this crazy, scary situation. Stay grounded. Help each other stay grounded as well.
We continue to hold each other in prayer during this uncertain time. Please add you prayer requests here.
