COVID-19 Steals the Glory of Ascension

Cameroon Baptist Convention Christians joined other believers worldwide to commemorate Ascension Day. This was on Thursday May 21, 2020. on the occasion, the men of God called on their Christians from Acts 1: 1-11 to prepare for the second coming of Christ which will happen the same way Jesus was taken away from the earth.

Some congregations worshiped in their chapels while others worshipped in their homes with their family members and downloading their pastors’ sermons sent to Christians on WhatsApp. This year’s Ascension Day just like Easter celebrated forty days earlier lacked the usual effervescence of the yesteryears. The reason is obvious the COVID-19 pandemic.
