Ascension Day – 4oth Day of Easter

ColourWeaving, David Yeo Poulton

Ascension

Ascending

Who went where?

Where is the place or space or experience to which they went?

Why up?

Above the clouds?

Beyond the Horsehead Nebula?

Into the void?

What words, what concepts do we use to talk about this mysterious event?

Or is it a non-event?

It comes around every year, 40 days after Easter, the distance after Easter that Ash Wednesday is before.

Seems to fall in May.

Full circle.  360′

Jesus was.  Jesus wasn’t.  Jesus was again.  Jesus went again.

How do we even speak of it?

Words to consider on this day of wonder, doubt and metaphor…
