From Ken Chase for All Saints Chiang Mai
Next week All Saints, Chiang Mai, will have its first ever Ash Wednesday service on 5th March at 7 p.m. It has been advertised on Steve Yarnold’s email news, which goes to many hundreds of people in Chiang Mai, so hopefully we may see some new people join us. The service will be held at our usual Sunday morning venue of 18 Pa Tan Road. Last week we had a very enjoyable Wednesday Night Group where we discussed chapter 1 of Marcus Borg’s book, Speaking Christian. Tonight we will discuss chapters 2 and 3, looking at the meaning of salvation. If anyone else would like to join us, we still have one copy of the book left.
This week we will be celebrating the Feast of the Transfiguration and the readings are Exodus 24:12-18, 2 Peter 1:16-21, and Matthew 17:1-9. We will be singing the hymns Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty, Be Thou My Vision, Lord, I want to be a Christian, and Oh for a thousand Tongues to Sing. After the service we will share coffee and biscuits at the house. Directions can be found on the Where and When page of the All Saints website. Audio or video recordings of all February’s sermons are now available on the website’s Audio-Visual page, and there is also a new Donate page where single or monthly offerings can be made, in US dollars or British pounds, to support the on-going work here in Chiang Mai.
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,
