From Ken Chase for All Saints Chiang Mai
We have a busy couple of weeks ahead at All Saints.
Firstly, November 1st is All Saints’ Day, and our liturgy on Sunday will be focusing on our patronal festival !
Then we have three special events next weekend.
Firstly, on Saturday 9th November, All Saints will have a stall at the JJ Market Garden Fair. This is a great annual community event in aid of Lanna Care Net, the Royal British Legion, and other charities. We will be there from 10am to 4pm and will have Bibles and other books for people to take away. This will be a great opportunity for people to hear about All Saints and for us to meet other expats. Volunteers needed to staff the table!
The following day, Sunday 10th November, William and Tarntip will be back, and we will have our delayed potluck meal following the service! Please bring delicious food to share!
Finally, we plan to attend the Remembrance Day Ceremony held at the Foreign Cemetery on 11th November. This is organised by the Royal British Legion to commemorate all those who died in the two World Wars and subsequently. We will meet at the cemetery at 10:30am. (If you continue down the east bank of the river, past Duke’s, Rimping supermarket, and an army base, you will eventually see the Foreign Cemetery on your left.)
This week’s readings are the passages for All Saints’ Day: Daniel 7:1-3,15-18, Ephesians 1:11-23, and Luke 6:20-31, and we will be singing the hymns For All the Saints, Sing with All the Saints in Glory, For the Bread which You have Broken, and O When the Saints Go Marching In!
After the service we will share coffee and biscuits at the house and go for lunch at the Thai restaurant further up Pa Ton Road. Directions can be found on the Where and When page.
Most people get to hear about us via the internet or by word of mouth, so please feel free to pass on this email to others. All are welcome to join us as we share the presence of the risen Jesus in our lives! We hope to see you soon and that you will enjoy worshiping with us,
