Ascension Day

Today is Ascension Day.  What is Ascension Day?  I wasn’t familiar with Ascension Day until I came to England.  In the Scottish Presbyterian traditions especially in very conservative Churches, these days are not marked.  As far as they are concerned, every Sabbath should be Easter.

Anyway, back to Ascention Day…..  Ascention Day is when Christ went back to Heaven to be seated at the right hand of God the Father.  Here in England, this day is marked by a service in Church.

I have been reminded that without the Ascension of Christ, prayer is not possible.
