Next week – June 2nd – we celebrate Ascension day. What on earth is this you may ask? The fortieth day after Easter Sunday is a day of great significance as we celebration the ascension of Christ into heaven and the new creation that his resurrection brought into being. It is not however a celebration that most of us outside liturgical churches have ever heard of or ever really celebrated, but it is very important and I would highly recommend that you consider incorporating it into your worship cycle. It seems such an appropriate celebration for those of us who are interested in sustainability and creation care.
A couple of years ago I posted this list of prayers and resources that you may like to consider. Since then I have come across a number of other beautiful liturgies and prayers that i want to make you aware of.
Note: This post was updated in 2014. Read the updated resources here
I particularly enjoyed this video The Ascension and Jesus Christ on The Work of the People (love their work).
Here is another good set of videos/loops from re:Worship
Obviously there are lots of other great resources out there too so if you have found something that is particularly helpful please leave a link in the comments below.
