The reason for my reaching for the walking stick to wave at the miscreant believer complete with the words, "And I know there you live you know!" is the amazingly ease they possessed when they told me that their church doesn't 'do' Ascension! How can we claim to be Christian and not observing the Ascension?
Christianity has a distinct shape and feel about it. There are rhythms and events which communicate amazing truths. The church's liturgical year starts with Advent and ends with 'Christ the King'.

So over the next few days we will be exploring and learning together the special times and seasons and hopefully by the end we will all have a better understanding of it all and some (who don't mark the Ascension) will begin to understand why this is a wrong practice.
See you shortly . . .
