Ascension Confirmations

This evening we had a rare Thursday night service at ECOOS. The occasion was both the feast of the Ascension and a Confirmation service.

Retired Bishop Duvall delivered the sermon and treated those present to words rarely heard by pewsitters here. As he spoke of Jesus the man, and Jesus the Son of God, and Jesus ascended, God and man, I said to myself, "Wow." It is just that it is unusual to hear talk of Jesus' divinity in these parts. The good Bishop combined the humanity and the divinity just like he should. I felt transported to another dimension.
"You unlock this door with the key of imagination beyond it is another dimension, a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind, You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas, you've just crossed over into the Twilight Zone."-Rod Serling

Alas, like the old TV show, this show had to end with the audience hungry for more.

Want more, read Acts1:1-11, and Luke 24:44-53.
