If there was ever a reason to celebrate, it's today and I was reminded of that by my blogging buddy Pastor David Maier who wrote a post about Ascension Day.
Do you celebrate Christmas, the birth of Jesus? Easter? Ascension is 40 days after that when he was physically taken from this earth back to heaven.
Why is it important to everybody during these times of heavy-duty uncertainty, historic change and suffering for so many?
When you're at happy hour today, at the coffee shop or just trying to figure out how you're going to make it through another day, it's worth thinking about.
Leave a comment on Pastor Maier's blog post and let him know you're interested in his homily he will give at his church tonight about why today is important. Ask him to share either the written text, the audio or both.
