An Ascension Day and Pentecost Virtual Roundtable
Six pastors reflect on two events that make all the difference for the Christian church
Ascension Day and Pentecost are major events in the life of the Christian church. We confess the truth of Jesus’ ascension and the coming of the Spirit every time we repeat the words of the Apostles’or Nicene Creed. But what difference do these days make in the life of the average worshiper today? And how do Christians and churches mark these important events?
Participating in the conversation were
Brian Engel, pastor in Mohawk, New York
Claudette Reid, minister of worship in Bloomfield, New Jersey
John Tenyenhuis, pastor in Toronto, Ontario
Eric Sarwar, pastor from Karachi, Pakistan, currently studying in the U.S.
Karen Wilk, pastor in Edmonton, Alberta
