Happy New Year! (Again!)

From Rev Iain Baxter, All Saints Chiang Mai

Dear Friends,

Our New Year’s Day was surprisingly well attended with over thirty people present, let’s hope this pattern continues in 2017.  This week we celebrate the Feast of the Epiphany when we remember the Wise Men visiting Jesus.  It also marks Twelfth Night, and so we will be taking out Christmas decorations down for another year!  Despite all the trepidations we share as we enter 2017, I am optimistic that this will be a good year at All Saints. God is with us, and we can trust that God will lead us forward according to God’s will.  Be excited – I am!

Our readings for Epiphany will be Isaiah 60:1-6, Ephesians 3:1-12, and Matthew 2:1-12, and we will be singing the carols We Three Kings of Orient Are, The First Nowell, As With Gladness Men of Old, and Hark! The Herald Angels Sing!  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.  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 continue to celebrate the Christ of Christmas!  We hope to see you soon and that you will enjoy worshiping with us,

God bless,

Iain
