ASCENSION DAY.
This is a holy day which many Christians forget to keep. If the days of the Birth, and Death, and Resurrection of Christ are marked by special observance why should the Day of the Ascension be neglected?
It is as if the Lord’s people should welcome His Coming, grieve over His Death, assure themselves of His Resurrection and of their own salvation, and then never care to follow Him on up to His glorious entry into heaven When that holy day comes round on the 25th of this month, there will be early Communion at 8, Morning Prayer at 11, Evening Prayer at 7.30, with Sermon, and Service a Yorkley Wood in the afternoon at 3. Let us do as the Apostles of Christ did, and meet together, not to watch, which is impossible, but to think of His Ascension, and to offer up our prayers for Him to receive in heaven before the Throne of Grace. It is a season of special prayers. The Rogation Days, or days of asking, which go before, are set apart to prepare for the due celebration of Ascension Day. The Evening Service on those days will afford an opportunity for prayer.
