Getting Ready for Sunday – 05.28.2017

Acts 1: 6-14

John 17: 1-11

Beginnings and Endings

The ascension does not mean the end of Jesus’ ministry. It does not mean his absence. It does not mean the suspension of God’s activity to reclaim the world. Quite the opposite.  The apostles return to Jerusalem and wait and pray.  As we do today.  Living like this requires just as much courage as if Jesus had said to go out immediately and change the world using our own brains and muscles.
