This week, we jump from the gospel of Mark into Luke's distinctly different world and voice, as experienced in the book of Acts. Jesus is kidnapped by a cloud (!!!), and the disciples are left, jaws dropped, gawking at the sky. They are looking in the wrong direction, two messengers inform them, and they are also looking for the wrong thing altogether. Jesus doesn't call them - or us - "back to normal," but to something altogether different; you might even say ANYthing but normal. Listen in to our worship, praying, singing, and wondering together about crafting something new on the other side of this pandemic.
