For this Sunday, I took the liberty of using the lectionary for Ascension itself, rather than the Sunday following Ascension. The reason was simple: there was something here that I feel needs to be said to more folks, and preferably understood too!
We have something here which, unfortunately, gets used to this day as an excuse to ridicule us. And the people who do so fail to see what’s in front of them! And something is actually closer than some folks think!
