Ascension Day

This is an especially good day to worship the risen and glorified Christ, to reflect on the gift of the Holy Spirit, who empowers and equips us to live as disciples of Jesus, and to look forward to our eternal dwelling, prepared for us by our Savior. Wow. Sort of like every other day.

From An Anglican Prayer Book:

Almighty Father and ever-living God, we truly believe that your only-begotten Son our Lord Jesus Christ has ascended into heaven: Grant, we pray, that we may also in heart and mind ascend there, and continually dwell with him; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
