Seventh Sunday of Easter (Year B)

The word ascension can apply to physical things like climbing stairs, but also to matters of authority. It is because the ascension of Christ is about the authority of grace and love that the Christian church has wanted to sing about it. You’ll hear that music on the next Sing For Joy. Join us.
