As we have taken the extraordinary step during this public health crisis of suspending Sunday and Wednesday Eucharistic services, it becomes all the more important for our corporate worship to be expressed in our homes and that we continue to nurture our minds and hearts as followers of Christ. On this page we hope to provide resources to assist in these aims.

 

Prior to Easter, Tish and Jonathan Warren both published articles on topics that are highly relevant today. They are available below.

Tish Harrison Warren, Ascension’s Writer in Residence, was recently published in Christianity Today (April 9, 2020). Her article entitled “If Easter is only a symbol, then to hell with it” is available HERE

 

 

A New York Times Opinion article was also published by Tish Harrison Warren on April 5, 2020. The article entitled “I miss singing in church” is available HERE

 

 

 

 

Just prior to Holy Week, Ascension’s Associate Rector, Jonathan Warren, published an article, “Remember that you are going to die” in the Anglican Pastor. The article is available HERE and a YouTube video on the same topic is available HERE.

 

 

 

Book Release April 14, 2020

Tish Warren has written a chapter in a book entitled Uncommon Ground: Living Faithfully in a World of Difference. The volume is edited by Tim Keller and John Inazu and includes chapters written from a variety of perspectives asking – How can Christians today interact with those around them in a way that shows respect to those whose beliefs are radically different but that also remains faithful to the gospel?

Praying the Daily Office:

During this season, we would highly encourage you to pray Morning and Evening prayer each day, or to pray the shortened versions entitled ‘Family Prayer’ in the Book of Common Prayer 2019, either as an individual, with your family, or with another small group of under 10 people. Under this ‘resource’ tab, we will also provide other resources to aid adults and children in your devotional life as we endure this crisis together.
