delivered by Pastor Marisa on May 13, 2018
based on Philippians 2:1-13
Ascension marks the end of Jesus’ time on earth with the disciples after he rose on Easter Sunday, appearing to them and teaching them. He leaves now to make room for the Holy Spirit to come soon on Pentecost, and to equip them for being his witnesses out into the world. Pastor Marisa will explore with us what this time on earth as God-with-Us (Emmanuel) meant, both then and now, as viewed through the lens of the apostle Paul writing to the Philippians.
