Today is Ascension Day, when we celebrate Our Lord’s bodily rise to heaven after his resurrection from the dead. For this one wants something ethereal and light, and this week’s podcast is certainly that: I Feel I Want to Fly, from the British group Cloud and their album Free to Fly. This album is a delight; it’s very Scriptural in lyrics and soaring in music.
It’s worthwhile, as we approach Whitsunday/Pentecost, to remember the following:
But you shall receive power, when the Holy Spirit shall have descended upon you, and shall be witnesses for me not only in Jerusalem, but throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." No sooner had Jesus said this than he was caught up before their eyes, and a cloud received him from their sight. While they were still gazing up into the heavens, as he went, suddenly two men, clothed in white, stood beside them, And said: "Men of Galilee, why are you standing here looking up into the heavens? This very Jesus, who has been taken from you into the heavens, will come in the very way in which you have seen him go into the heavens." (Acts 1:8-11)
The rest of this great album is at The Ancient Star-Song.
