Ascension Day

The church celebrates Jesus' ascension into heaven today. I don't know that the event is "bigger" than Christmas or Easter, but it does mark the day that history definitively changed. Jesus comes to the throne on the clouds of heaven, and takes his seat at the right hand of power. This is an earth-shaking event, as Peter points out a few days later on Pentecost.

Jesus reigns.
