Ascension Day, Acts 1:1–11

In one of my worst Church nightmares, the Ascension never happened! Just think about it – instead of going to be with the Father, the risen Jesus Christ sets up an office in Jerusalem, from which he is going to head up his Church, and be available to the faithful of all times, all places! […]
