Daily Lectionary with Prayers
and Reflections on Scripture and World
It took a year to read the Bible, then almost 9 months to read the Apocrypha. Now, I'm going to try to offer reflections on the Narrative Lectionary. But, I won't be posting daily--at least, for a while.

Departure, Acts 1:1-11
He was a man who taught and worked and died. He appeared to travelers and disciples. We don't experience him in the way that they did. Yet, we continue to experience him. In the Christian calendar, we mark the 40th day after Easter as the day of the Ascension of the Lord.
They had listened to his teaching. They had asked him when things would be the way they wanted them to be.
He told them that the Holy Spirit would visit them and bestow power upon them.
