This year, The Ascension of the Lord Jesus Christ, forty days after the Resurrection, is Thursday, May 21. (May 24 will be Ascension Sunday.) The Day of Pentecost—the birthday of the Church—happens ten days later on Sunday, May 31.
At Seedbed, these are what we call Awakening Days. To that end, we commissioned Matt Leroy, who leads a church plant called Love Chapel Hill in North Carolina, to write a short nine day prayer and reflection guide called COUNTDOWN: Preparing For the Church’s Birthday.
