Today
Today is/was
election day in the UK . Its also Ascension day. Wikipedia reports "According to Welsh superstition, it is unlucky to do any work on Ascension Day". Well I doubt that (but so as to not risk it I've been at a conference!)
But the ascension is a key part of the Christian faith - I spoke on this on Sunday and got quite excited as I prepared - because it reminds us that Christ not only died but is risen and is in the highest place, given all authority and power, and is the advocate to God the Father on our behalf. Maybe its time us non-conformists made more of ascension day?
