05/10/18 - NNHS Newsletter - Ascension Day

“And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud
received him out of their sight. And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up,
behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee,
why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven,
shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven
.

- Acts 1: 9-11 (KJV)

BONUS ASCENSION DAY PICNIC IDEA SUGGESTIONS:

Feast of the Ascension Picnic Ideas - "...What would the menu for an Ascension picnic include? There is not a set menu, but it is traditional to eat a bird of some sort (pigeon, pheasant, duck) since Jesus "flew" to heaven. In our culture chicken or turkey might be more common and available even though they are not know for their flight abilities. Also any fruits as they represent Christ, the first fruit of all men. The Italians specifically brought beans and grapes to church on the feast of the Ascension. The grapes and beans were supposed to be used as a feast for the dead in heaven..."


FINALLY:

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 05/09/18:

O Christ, Thou Hast Ascended

Music - Greenland

Words by Edward H. Bickersteth, Jr., 1872
(25 Jan 1825 -16 May 1906)
 

O Christ, thou hast ascended
triumphantly on high,
by cherub guards attended
and armies of the sky:
let earth tell forth the story:
our very flesh and bone,
Emmanuel, in glory,
ascends his Father's throne.

Heaven's gates unfold above thee,
but canst thou, Lord, forget
the little band who love thee
and gaze from Olivet?
Nay, on thy breast engraven
thou bearest every name,
our Priest in earth and heaven
eternally the same.

There, there thou standest pleading
the virtue of thy blood,
for sinners interceding,
our Advocate with God;
and every changeful fashion
of our brief joys and cares
finds thought in thy compassion
and echo in thy prayers.

O for the priceless merit
of thy redeeming cross!
Vouchsafe thy sevenfold Spirit
and turn to gain our loss;
till we by strong endeavor
in heart and mind ascend,
and dwell with thee for ever
in glories without end.
