Ascension Deficit Disorder

May 16 2021, 10am
The church marks Ascension on the 40th day after Easter, remembering the day Jesus ascended to Heaven. And while our understanding of cosmology, and the language we use to describe it, may have changed in the 2,000 years since Jesus ascended, we are still grappling with what it means to serve a risen Lord. Ascension Deficit Disorder is the diagnosis for when we’ve forgotten whose job it is to save the world and when we get confused about our call to be witnesses.
