One of the things I love about Sonlight is that you are exposed to so many different ideas, traditions, cultures, and experiences through the stories your read about people all over the world (and time). As you cycle through history three times over the course of your Sonlight studies, you'll develop a heart for the world. Today, many years after completing my own Sonlight Cores, I still enjoy learning about other traditions, especially in the Church.
I've never celebrated to the Feast of Ascension, but I appreciated the insights provided on the BibleMesh blog as to why we should celebrate the Ascension. Granted, I don't think I'll do anything special tomorrow, but I appreciate the reminder to consider what Christ has done for me and the blessing it is to be given the Helper.
Do you celebrate the Ascension? What aspects of life do you like learning about from other traditions and cultures?
