From Rev Iain Baxter, All Saints Chiang Mai
Ash Wednesday at All Saints!
We had a very moving and thought-provoking Ash Wednesday service yesterday. A time to reflect as we enter this season of Lent. Our lenten thoughts will continue this Sunday when our readings will be Genesis 9:8-17, 1 Peter 3:18-22, and Mark 1:9-15, and we will be singing the hymns Awake me Soul, O Love that will not let me go, Dear Lord and Father of mankind, and Joyful Joyful we adore Thee. You can find the readings via this link. Our sermon will look at God’s promise marked by the rainbow.
Meanwhile, this Friday, the Chiang Mai LGBT Group will be using our building to show the highly acclaimed 2014 movie Pride, on Friday 27th February at 7pm. This is a popular British film set in the Miners’ Strike of the early 1980s. A group of activists travel to a small South Wales village to offer their help. It is a funny and thought-provoking film which had a 15 certificate when first released. You will be asked for a THB100 donation which includes one free drink and snacks. Everyone is welcome to attend, you do not have to be a group member.
