Ascension Liturgy


Pastor:  The cross on which our captain was fastened as to a mast,
Congregants:  Has become the rudder of our shipwrecked nature.

Pastor:  The cross steers us to the heavenly harbor.
Congregants:  For our captain has triumphed!  He has guided us home.

Pastor:  Therefore, rejoice!  Look today to the second Adam.
Congregants:  He has been received into the highest heaven.

Pastor:  Christ's ascension is our uplifting.
Congregants:  We have gained more in the new Adam than we lost in the first.

Pastor:  In Christ, WE have penetrated the heights of heaven.
Congregants:  In his ascending, WE are received into the Father's house.
