The Work of the Holy Spirit 

The Time of Transition: Resurrection to Ascension

This past Sunday we celebrated the resurrection of Jesus Christ and considered its significance in our lives. This Sunday we will be looking at Acts 1:1-8 and reflecting on the forty days between Jesus’ resurrection and his ascension. What happened during those days and are they significant and what can we learn from them that might apply to today.
