The grace of Christ be with you!
This last Thursday was Ascension Day, the fortieth day after Easter Sunday in which we celebrate the ascension of Christ to our heavenly Father. We will celebrate Christ’s ascension this Sunday during our combined live-streamed worship service. The link to the service is on our MJPC website at www.mjpc.org. You can view the service live at 9am or see the replay later at the same link. A copy of the Worship bulletin and an outline of the sermon are attached.
Ascension day is one of those celebrations that has received little attention in the Presbyterian Church (though, as I recall, John Calvin thought that is was a worthy celebration). Yet the meaning of this event is telling. Christ’s lordship over the world is not some future event awaiting his return. He is lord over all of creation now! The church can see it clearly, right? Even in the midst of pandemic, personal crises, or simply the challenges of daily living it is clear to us…isn’t it? Hmmm, the church doesn’t hesitate to proclaim that “Christ is Lord,” but the rest of the world, at least, may need examples of what we mean by such a proclamation. To be honest, I don’t mind being reminded where to look to see his Lordship as well!
Join us on-line this Sunday as MJPC hosts our worship stream with our friends from the United Methodist and First Baptist churches of West Jefferson.
