Ascension Reflections


While Jesus' earthly pilgrimage was fairly "earth bound," give or take a transcendent moment on Mt. Tabor (Transfiguration and all), this all changed with his ascension into heaven. This is an unexpected twist to the story of resurrection glory, when the Pilgrim God ascends to take his place in the cosmic realm of God's love, in order that the Holy Spirit can descend unto those of us who were to follow the disciples of yore.

This story is simply a reminder that the Holy and the earthly are forever entwined in our living together, one with the other.

Bien camino!

pilgrim peace, Brett
