Ascension Day is just this Thursday. It’s where we remember Jesus’s “Last Will and Testament” to his Apostles.
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Acts 1:8
These days, we Americans can’t seem to commit to anything. Gone are the days of “company men”, who work at the same job for years. Other things seem to be going that way, like having a “home town”. We’re now living in a culture that has a created a new relationship: the “Starter Marriage.’ We see this in churches. People float from church to church.
They might leave because of a conflict, a move, or because the personality of the church changed. We aren’t leaving because we want to go. We leave because we want a sense of purpose. We are leaving because we want to feel like we were sent out for a reason.
