Call to Worship for Ascension

Here’s a call to worship for Ascension Day (or Ascension Sunday). It comes from Rev. Mindi’s Rev-o-lution website.

Call to Worship: Ascension
(inspired by Acts 1:6-11)

Why are we looking up to heaven?
Christ has come;
Christ has risen;
Christ will come again.

Why are we looking ahead to the future?
The Holy Spirit is among us now.
In our baptism, we have already died and risen with Christ.

Why are we afraid of death and dying?
God’s love casts out our fear.

Why are we afraid to follow Jesus?
In Christ, we have the promise of new life now,
eternal life to come.
In Christ, we join our hearts to worship God,
who has prepared for us to enter the reign of God.
