Ascension Worship

In our tradition, we usually celebrate the Ascension of Christ (which always falls on a Thursday) on the Sunday before Pentecost. I have talked about the stardust aspect of the Ascension in the past, but I thought it would appropriate to do it again this year. We need a message of hope that affirms both our faith in God and our belief that science is real. Here's the order (and remember, as always, it's best to watch the video in full-screen mode):

  • 00.00 Chimes
  • 00.29 Prélude: Come, Thou Almighty King, by Ann Doersam
  • 03.21 Welcome
  • 03.47 Call to Worship from Psalm 47
  • 04.11 Opening Prayer
  • 05.09 Scripture Reading: Luke 24:50-53
  • 05.41 Meditation
  • 08.45 Memorial Day Prayer
  • 09.37 Communion Prayer
  • 10.21 Lord's Prayer
  • 10.50 Institution/Sharing the Bread & Cup
  • 11.34 Benediction
  • 12.43 Response: Go Now in Peace
