From Ken Chase for All Saints Chiang Mai
We had a great day last Saturday at the JJ Market Garden Fair. Although we didn’t sell any Christmas cards at all, we had a good opportunity to meet new people and we gave away five bibles. Thanks to Joel, Lindy, Darryl, William, Tarntip and Haley, for helping make this a success! On Sunday, fourteen people attended worship, and we then enjoyed an excellent potluck lunch together – Tarntip’s curry was particularly appreciated. We gathered afterwards for a group photo next to the new All Saints banner. This should help people to find us. Finally on Monday six of us went down to the Foreign Cemetery for the annual Remembrance Day Service organised by the Royal British Legion.
This week we have two events coming up: Firstly, everyone is invited to come to 18 Pa Tan Road on Friday night at 6pm to watch the Loi Krathong celebrations on the river. We’re not sure exactly what will be happening this far up, but we are assured it should be fun to watch. Then on Sunday we have our usual morning Eucharist at 11am, to which all are, of course, welcome!
This week’s scripture readings are: Malachi 4:1-2a, 2.Thessalonians 3:6-13, and Luke 21:5-19 , and we will be singing the hymns Holy, Holy, Holy, Let All the World in Every Corner Sing, Let Us Build a House, and Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah. Audio of last week’s sermon, and video from All Saints’ Day, can be found here on the Audio-Visual page of the website.
