Palm Sunday

From Rev Iain Baxter, All Saints Chiang Mai

Parading the Palms on Palm Sunday

Potluck lunch this week!

Dear Friends,

While many people will be away over the Easter Season, it was great to again see nearly thirty people at All Saints last Sunday!  This Sunday is Palm Sunday, and we will begin our worship with the Parading of the Palms.  Our service will also be followed by a pot-luck lunch!

As we enter the Easter Season we focus on the central aspect of our faith – God’s unlimited love for us and all the world.  Let us be people of joy, ready to give thanks for all that God in Christ has done!

We also need to give thanks for the coming ordinations of Gene Bourquin as Deacon on 13th May, and Connie Mudore as Priest on 5th June.  Gene will be ordained in New York and will be joining us to minister at All Saints in August.  Connie will be ordained in London and will return later in June.  Connie will be developing a chaplaincy ministry in Chiang Mai and will also be based here at All Saints.

Gene has also been working on the All Saints Facebook page.  You can visit and like the page and add your own pictures or comments.

Our bible readings for Palm Sunday are Matthew 21:1-11, Philippians 2:5-11, and Matthew 27:11-54, and we will be singing the hymns Hosanna in the Highest, All Glory Laud and Honour, Hosanna Loud Hosanna, You are the King of Glory, and Ride on Ride on in Majesty!  The readings can be found via this link!

God bless,

Iain
