Holy Communion For Ascension Day

12cosmic_christ[1]
Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I'll rise.

(Maya Angelou April 4, 1928 – May 28, 2014)

Mock the devil,
Make him sweat!
He hasn't won the battle yet;
The New Life starts here.

(Mike Scott - The Waterboys)

With the exception of two instrumental tracks used as background behind the liturgy, all the music in today's Ascension Day service is performed by The Waterboys or Mike Scott solo. With a nod to the now well established U2Charist I have christened this one off podcast, the Waterboycharist. Fortunately the service is a lot more uplifting and packed full of goodness than that rather forced play on words might indicate.

At Saint Laika’s everyone is encouraged to eat and drink in remembrance of Jesus Christ, just as he commanded his followers to do. No one is excluded and if you have been pushed out of a church in the past or if you do not feel part of the institutional churches, for whatever reason, you are especially welcome here.

If you want to physically partake of communion you will require a small piece of bread and a small amount of drink (preferably made from grapes and containing alcohol). How you view the nature of this part of the service is completely up to you.

  1. God has gone up with a shout!

    Looking forward to this, MP. Thanks (and long-live hipcast!).

    One more thing: could I please have some prayers for my bad back? In a lot of pain the past week… 🙁
