Welcome Back to All Saints!

From Rev Iain Baxter, All Saints Chiang Mai

All are Welcome!

Dear Friends,

I am still in England, but Andy and I will be back on Sunday, ready for a new year!  Welcome back also to all those who have been away over the summer – we hope to see you worshipping with us soon!

Sometimes I wish I could travel business class!  It must be nice to be rich, famous, and powerful.  The grass always looks greener – not just on the other side of the fence – but in the fields which are higher up!  However, in this week’s Old Testament reading we have the story of David and Bathsheba.  As I have said in some recent sermons, power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.  Perhaps being rich and famous is not so good after all.  We will look at the life of David – warts and all – this Sunday.

This week our readings will be 2 Samuel 11:26-12:13, Ephesians 4:1-16, and John 6:24-35, and we will be singing the hymns All Creatures of our God and King, Be Thou My Vision, For the Bread which You have Broken,and Amazing Grace.  The readings can be found via this link!

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
