Ascension Day


9 May

Today is Ascension Day. Click here for the text of Acts 1:6-11. Read it out loud.

Paula Gooder writes of the Ascension, “After the resurrection, once they had grasped what had happened to Jesus, the disciples were in danger of slipping back into their previous form of existence. What they most needed was a vacuum, and this is what the ascension provided, a space that could only be filled if they picked up the challenge and took it on.”

What vacuums have come into your life, to challenge you to step more fully into ministry?
