May 13, 2018

Rev. Norm Seli wonders about the story of the Ascension, told at the end of Luke's Gospel and again in beginning of the Book of Acts.  Is Jesus Superman?  Why didn't he leave his body behind?  Is Luke telling the truth?  Did all of this actually happen??  Have a listen and wonder for yourself what this story might mean to you in 2018.
