Cutting the string at Ascension

Next Step #206 – May 17, 2012

The Feast of Ascension (Hambartzum) is celebrated as a reminder of Christ’s Great Commission, to take the Gospel message to the world. The power of God within our lives. Rejecting the superstitions of the destiny via Tumanian’s poem, Anush. An Ascension day experience: are pork-chops the menu-item of choice? Have you seen the little piggies…? Why is Jesus missing from the list of philosophers? Cutting the 7 knots that keep us captive.

Ascension (Hampartzoum) Offensive

Next Step #156 – June 2, 2011

Forty days after Easter – it’s the feast of Ascension (Hampartzoum). Drop the superstitions and get into gear – a look at Matthew 28:16-20 as a message for then and now. Fr. Vazken looks for inclusion in the 1933 King Kong tribe and the chorus of Anush Opera. Meanwhile – avoid those virgin martinis by taking the Christian Offensive and stopping the numbskulledness.
