A year ago, part I (liturgical year: Ascension)

A year ago, liturgically speaking, I was musing on why the Ascension didn't "grab" me and posting icons and some commentary.

This year, I am reading with great appreciation two colleagues' sermons:

From the city of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, this one.

From a small town in Vermont, this one.

Thank you, inspirational Anglicans. Nourishing food after a day that reminded me how much I cherish the church and its worship, because I had to be away from it.

I'm skipping Stephen Colbert for this, I'll have you know.
