Justin Kollmeyer's picture

Christmas and Easter. The “biggies,” right?

Well, what about the event we will “celebrate”tomorrow, which happens to be the 40th day after Easter?

Yes, it was 40 days after Christ’s resurrection that He ascended back into heaven, the event we call “The Ascension.”

News flash: it’s a “biggie,” too.

It was just six years ago, In February of 2008, that Minister BaSean A. Jackson met with three other people, Wendell Phillips, Janace Coleman, and John Clemons, at Smokey Bones Restaurant in Peachtree City. The topic of discussion was about whether they could change people’s minds, including their own, about church.
