This Thursday is Ascension Day! We will celebrate on Sunday!
It is with deep sadness that I have to announce the death of one of our most loved members, David Burdoin. As most of you know, he had leukemia and this quickly allowed pneumonia to develop. He died at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, with his husband, Shem, by his side.
David’s funeral will be on Monday 14th May at 2 p.m. at All Saints, followed by the committal at McKean Hospital Crematorium at 3:30 p.m. There will be a reception to follow back at the church. He is home with the Lord now and at peace. Please continue to hold Shem in your prayers.
This Sunday we will celebrate the Ascension of Christ as we mark the last Sunday of the Easter Season. Even as we share the sadness of a loved one passing, we also share the joy of the resurrection and the promise that there is more. If God is for us, who can be against us?
Our readings this Sunday will be Acts 1:1-11, Ephesians 1:15-23, and Luke 24:44-53, and we will be singing the hymns Immortal Invisible God only Wise, Hail the Day that Sees Him Rise, Give me Jesus, and Lift High the Cross!
