5/24 Ascension Sunday

Looking up and keeping on

The disciples wondering again, looked up as their Bread – their Door – their Shepherd – their Friend disappeared into the clouds.  Wondering, “What now?”.  It’s a thought we’ve shared over the past months.  And hopefully like the disciples we’ve remembered to look up according to the faith handed down to us, looking up past the chaos and fear around us, looking up beyond the experts and authorities who say “Look at ME!” Looking up to our Bread and Life, our Door and Way, our Shepherd and Friend.  And seeing things anew we await the Pentecost Gift, the Spirit who leads us on.
