Seventh Sunday of Easter (Year C)

The Christian Church remembers the Ascension of Christ not as a story of Jesus vanishing, but a story of Jesus ascending to an eternal throne. So farewell songs are not the order of the day; songs of majesty and celebration are. You’ll hear them on the next Sing For Joy.
