We are Forgiven!

From Rev Iain Baxter, All Saints Chiang Mai

The Prodigal Son

Dear Friends,

This week our Gospel reading is Jesus’ parable of the prodigal son, and this will be the focus of our sermon and worship.  The parable is a beautiful illustration of God’s love and forgiveness – we all have much to be thankful for!

This Saturday, 5th May, Lillian Wong, who attends All Saints with her husband Cary, will be performing in a special dance performance called Deliverance.  The two shows will be at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. at Chiang Mai University Arts Theater and are in aid of the School of Promise in Hang Dong.

Then next Wednesday at 3 p.m., a Great Decisionsmeeting at All Saints will discuss the subject of migration.  This is lead by All Saints regular, Gayle Avant.

Finally, here again is advanced notice of our Easter Services for your diary:

Sunday 20th March.
11 a.m. Palm Sunday.

Thursday 24th March.
7:30 pm  Maundy Thursday Service.  This will be a time for quiet, candle-lit,

contemplation including Taizé chants and the washing of one another’s feet.

Friday 25th March.
11 a.m. Good Friday Service marking the crucifixion of our Lord.

Sunday 27th March.
11 a.m. Easter Sunday – A joyous Eucharist to proclaim Christ’s resurrection.

This will be followed by an Easter Potluck Lunch and Easter Egg hunt!

This Sunday’s readings are Joshua 5:9-12, 2 Corinthians 5:16-21, and Luke 15:1-32, and we will be singing the hymns The King of Love My Shepherd IsWhat shall I do my God to loveFor the Bread Which You Have Broken, and Go forth and tell!  The readings can be found via this link!  Nancy will be playing the organ at our 9:15 service, and Anders at our 11 a.m. service.  Thanks to them both!

God bless,

Iain
