Ascension Day

St Luke’s Gospel tells us that, before he leaves them, Jesus enables his followers to understand the scriptures. He encourages them to wait confidently to be equipped fully by the Holy Spirit for ministry. This ministry will be to call people in the name of Jesus Christ, to turn their lives around and return to God. After watching Jesus ascend to heaven the disciples return to Jerusalem from where they will spread the good news to all nations. They, like us, begin by worshipping God.
