Ash Wednesday!

From Rev Iain Baxter, All Saints Chiang Mai

Just a few of the pancakes at Sunday’s potluck

Ash Wednesday Service – 7 p.m. Wednesday 10th February

Dear Friends,

Today is Shrove Tuesday – the day when we ask for our sins to be shriven – forgiven and absolved – before Lent begins.  It is also known as Pancake Day in the UK, and Mardi Gras in much of the rest of the world.  On Sunday, twenty-four of us shared in pancakes and lots of sweet toppings to mark this putting away of luxury before the traditional season of fasting.

Tomorrow we will have our Ash Wednesday service, beginning at 7 p.m.  The service will last around 45 minutes and will include the imposition of ashes.  I hope you can join us as we draw near to God in the knowledge of God’s love and care!

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
