Singing Praise to God!

From Rev Iain Baxter, All Saints Chiang Mai

Worship at All Saints a few weeks ago!

Dear Friends,

We introduced our singing of the Psalm last week, and I think it went well!  It is all part of our praising of God together, whether with psalm, or hymn, or spiritual song!  In one week’s time we will begin our new Wednesday night group led by Elena.  It will look at 13 women from the Bible and will continue weekly until the end of the year.  (Can you believe there are only 13 weeks to Christmas!)   Everyone is welcome and refreshments will be provided.  Please let Elena know if you intend to come at elena.j.kelly@gmail.com

This Sunday our readings are taken from Exodus 17:1-7, Philippians 2:1-13, and Matthew 21:23-32, and we will be singing the hymns All My Hope on God Is FoundedYou Laid Aside Your MajestyBe Thou My Vision O Lord of my Heart, and All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name.  You can find the readings via this link.    This week’s sermon is entitled Jesus – Could he really be God?

Video and audio of our major services can be found on the Audio-Visual page of the All Saints website and as always, 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,

God bless,

Iain

New Psalm Settings!

From Rev Iain Baxter, All Saints Chiang Mai

Welcome to All Saints!

Dear Friends,

At All Saints we like to try new things and this week we will be trying out chanting our Psalm.  The Psalms were written to be chanted or sung and it is another way we can introduce more music and variety into our worship! Let me know what you think.  We could also sing the Psalms to popular hymn tunes, but chanting somehow gives a feel of the ancient traditions of the church of which we are part.  The metrical arrangements we will be using were produced by the Church of Scotland, so we will be standing in the Scottish Presbyterian tradition.

Meanwhile, another reminder that in two weeks’ time we will be starting a new Wednesday evening group at All Saints Chiang Mai.  It will run from October 1 – December 31. Class will start promptly at 7pm and end around 8pm.  Elena Kelly will be leading the class focusing on 13 specific women in the Bible. Wine and cheese will be provided, bring any translation or paraphrase of the Bible that you possess (the more, the better!).  All humans are welcome!  If you would like to take part please RSVP to elena.j.kelly@gmail.com

This Sunday our readings are taken from Exodus 14:19-31, Romans 14:1-12, and Matthew 18:21-35, and we will be singing the hymns All Creatures of our God and KingDear Lord and Father of MankindLet us Break Bread Together, and Immortal, Invisible, God only Wise. You can find the readings via this link.  I will be preaching about forgiveness and diversity in the church.

God bless,

Iain
