From Rev Iain Baxter, All Saints Chiang Mai
Part of last year’s huge pile of pancakes!
This Friday: Theology on Tap!
This Sunday: Pancake Potluck
Next Wednesday: Ash Wednesday Service
This week at All Saints we will celebrate “Pancake Sunday”! There will be a Pancake Potluck following the morning service. We will supply the pancakes, please bring toppings to share! We will also have pancake races – so bring your running shoes! All are welcome to join! Pancake Sunday is part of our preparation for Lent which begins on 1st March, Ash Wednesday. At All Saints we will be having our Ash Wednesday service at 7 p.m.
Lent is a time for reflection and repentance – a time to consider how much we still need to change to become like Jesus – but this Sunday we will celebrate the Transfiguration when we see Jesus himself transformed. The message of the Transfiguration may be that we need to change too, but it is the guarantee of God’s power to transform us if we allow the Holy Spirit to have her way!
Meanwhile, This Friday our Theology on Tap group will move to a new venue: The Pub! The Pub is on Huaykaew Road opposite Maya shopping mall, and our meeting will begin at 7 p.m. This month’s topic will be “Sin and Repentance”. All are welcome – don’t worry if it is your first time!
This Sunday our bible readings are Exodus 24:12-18, 2 Peter 1:16-21, and Matthew 17:1-9, and we will be singing the hymns Awake My Soul, and with the Sun, Swiftly Pass the Clouds of Glory, Be Thou My Vision, and Transfiguration Hymn! The readings can be found via this link!
