Have you ever considered the Ascension of Jesus or is this event for you one of those rather mysterious happenings in the Bible that you pay little note of? For the Apostles and Disciples of Jesus gathered together with the Risen Lord His Ascension may have been “mysterious” but it was a reality that they experienced. What did this mean to the gathered Disciples as they witnessed Jesus’ Ascension into heaven? Where did He go? What now?

We will explore this extraordinary event this morning expecting to discover some answers to “Where did He go?” and “What now?” and more importantly what this means for you and for me as we follow our Lord and Savior, Jesus, with all of our heart, mind, and strength. Hint: Just as Jesus Resurrection could not occur except through the Cross; for the Apostles and Disciples the Pentecost could not occur except through the Ascension.

“Where did He go?” and “What now”?

Fr. Gary Seymour+
