Not good to be alone!

From Rev Iain Baxter, All Saints Chiang Mai

The Garden of Eden

Dear Friends,

This week’s readings include the story of Adam and Eve and Jesus’ answer to a question on divorce.  What is God saying to us about relationships?  That will be the message in this week’s sermon: what did God mean when he said “It is not good for Adam to be alone?”

In a strange coincidence, our two notices also have a garden or animal theme: Firstly, the Friends of the Chiang Mai Foreign Cemetery would like volunteers this Saturday to help in their gardening work, contact me if you are interested.  Secondly, it is now just over two weeks until our Harvest Festival on Sunday 18th October at Thung Dong Farm.  Please sign up this week if you intend to come.   There will be no service at All Saints on that day, instead we will leave the church at 9:30 a.m. and spend the day at the farm.  Our service will begin around 11:30 a.m. and we will share lunch together—which Warren has kindly provided. We should arrive back at church around 5 p.m.  You can see more pictures and information about the farm at www.thungdongfarmstay.com  It looks like a beautiful place!

This week our readings are Genesis 2:18-24, Hebrews 1:1-4, 2:5-12, and Mark 10:2-16, and we will be singing the hymns Alleluia Sing to Jesus, Called as partners in Christ’s service, Let us break bread together, and Lift High the Cross.  The readings can be found via this link.

If you don’t know the way to All Saints, directions can be found on the Where and When page.

God bless,

Iain
