Ascension Day is coming! Everyone is welcome to join Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church (1541 St. Mary’s Road) for their Ascension Day service on Thursday, May 10 at 6:00 pm. Did you know there are three high festivals in the Christian Church year? Christmas, Easter and Ascension! Each time Jesus does something for humanity. At Christmas, He joins humanity in birth. At Easter, He redeems humanity by dying and rising. At Ascension, He glorifies humanity by taking us up above all angels to the right hand of God. His work would not be complete if He did not bring us back to the Father in heaven – so this is an enormous day for Christians. It is the coronation celebration of our Lord as He is proclaimed to be King of the universe. And it is from His throne that He sends His Spirit.
