The Ascension can be difficult to accept. But it has a crucial meaning. It’s linked to the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. And it’s linked to Jesus’ prayer in John 17 where Jesus says the disciples are like him – “in the world, but not of the world”. The ascension emphasises that this applies to all of us – mind, spirit, and body.
