Pancakes and Ashes!

From Rev Iain Baxter, All Saints Chiang Mai

Tossing Pancakes

Dear Friends,

Next week we will enter the season of Lent, and at All Saints we will mark this with our Ash Wednesday Service.  The service will be at 7 p.m. on Wednesday 10th February. However, the British tradition is to have pancakes the day before – Shrove Tuesday is known as “Pancake Day!”  All Saints will mark this with a special pancake potluckfollowing the 11 a.m. service this Sunday.  Bring toppings or ready-made pancakes to microwave – see Caitlin for more details on camacongo@gmail.com or call 0873 750 317, or just come along with your food!

Also, for council members, advance notice that we will have our next church council meeting at 2 p.m. on Sunday 14th February.

This week our readings are Exodus 34:29-35, 2 Corinthians 3:12-4:2, and Luke 9:28-43, and we will be singing the hymns All Creatures of our God and King, Swiftly Pass the Clouds of Glory, For the Bread Which You Have Broken, and Christ is made the Sure Foundation.  The readings can be found via this link!  Our sermon is entitled What is that?

Meanwhile, Gayle Avent, an American man who has recently started attending All Saints, along with his wife Kay, is hoping to start a discussion group.  He writes:

NEW GREAT DECISIONS GROUP IN CHIANG MAI
Great Decisions is an adult discussion series focused on challenges to America and produced each year by the US Foreign Policy Association. Each session includes a brief reading, a video & discussion.  Session 1 video is “The Middle East”.  I have led GD groups at Baylor and elsewhere.  If you are potentially interest in participating, send me an e-mail (Gayle_Avant@Baylor.edu) quickly.  No obligation.  A group may meet at All Saints.

If you don’t know the way to All Saints, 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
