Up We Go!  Click here Click title to view sermon Acts 1: 1–11
Summary: The story of Jesus’ ascension can give people the idea that real spirituality is a matter of escaping from the world and ascending to God. But Jesus isn’t abandoning the world, and he doesn’t encourage the disciples to think that way. Instead, he sends them out to bear witness to him in the world in the power of his Spirit. In the first century, the apostles witnessed throughout the Mediterranean world. Today our witness is needed right in our own country.

Up in the Sky with God  Click here Click title to view sermon Acts 1: 1–11
Summary: No matter who we are, much of the significance of the date on which we leave this world is determined by what we do while we are in it. This was never truer than it was in the life of Jesus. Whatever the details of Jesus’ Ascension into heaven, the life that preceded it is what gives meaning to today’s celebration of his Ascension. This familiar story also offers much on which we can reflect if we but put ourselves in the middle of it.

Summary: The focus of Ascension is not on the sky, into which Christ appeared, but on the earth, which he wanted his followers to fill with the Gospel message. He calls us to do the same today, in our homes and workplaces and our daily haunts.

The Beclouded One  Click here Click title to view sermon Acts 1: 1–11
Summary: Clouds are often used in the Bible to speak about the presence and glory of God. When we read that a cloud took the ascended Lord from the sight of the disciples, it suggests then that he is received into the fullest communion with God. And since God is not limited by time and space, neither is Jesus. In the power of the Spirit he is active now, not just for a few people in Palestine but in the mission of his people throughout the world.
