The ascension is a turning point in the life of the church. It is a lesson for us as well.

Jesus ascended.
The disciples watched.
They kept looking up after he was gone.

Two men in robes
stood by their sides.
“Why do you stand looking up?”

They said to go
to Jerusalem
to worship and to pray.

We are like them.
We stand looking up
when we should be looking ahead.

If they kept looking up
and hadn’t prayed
They’d not been ready when the Spirit came.

If we worship
we, too, will be prepared
for our own special Pentecost.

A number of years ago, Dallas Holm recorded a song titled "Rise Again" whichs puts to music the fine words you've penned.
