Sunday 28th May 2017 – Easter 7A – Ascension Sunday (2)

High and heavenly One,

raised from the ground,

then raised to heaven,

we praise You.

For far beyond our understanding,

You came to dwell amongst humanity,

that the presence of God would be met

in the hands and voices of Your living Presence.

In the parting of the clouds

that took You from our midst

space was created

in which to prepare human hearts

to tell and share the story of Love.

 

Too heavenly minded that sometimes we are of no earthly use,

for in seeking to emulate the precious wall of the Eternal Kingdom,

we forget compassion and care.

Eyes on the clouds

we stumble with careless words and actions,

or neglect the world in which we live.

 

As forgiveness revitalise our live,

make us passionate for the whole of creation,

that our lives may speak of the fullness of God.

Amen.
