From Rev Iain Baxter, All Saints Chiang Mai
On the road to Emmaus
The Easter Season continues. Although this week is the third Sunday of Easter, our Gospel reading still continues the story of that day!
This week we see two un-named disciples leaving Jerusalem on the evening of Easter Sunday. I had to laugh at the picture above as the disciples fail to recognise Jesus! (Clue: Jesus is the one in the middle dressed in the white!) In the real biblical account things were not so obvious! Jesus walks with them, yet they fail to recognise him until he reveals himself to them at the breaking of bread.
Are we the same? Do we often fail to recognise Jesus? He is often not so obvious as in the picture above! Find out more this week.
Our bible readings for the Third Sunday of Easter are Acts 2:14a, 36-41,1 Peter 1:17-23, and Luke 24:13-35, and we will be singing the hymns Alleluia Alleluia Give Thanks, Jesus Christ is Risen Today, One Bread One Body, and Christ is made the Sure Foundation. The readings can be found via this link!
Tomorrow Night – Theology on Tap
Our next Theology on Tap group will be this Friday, 28th April, and will again be at the UN Irish Pub. We will begin at 7 p.m. and our topic will be The Death and Resurrection of Jesus: What does it mean and did Jesus have to die? Everyone is welcome to join!
Music in Worship
This week we will be using a new version of the Gloria, Sanctus, and Kyrie – the parts of our worship beginning Glory to God, Holy, Holy, Holy, and Lamb of God… You can listen to them by clicking on the name and you can view the music score here.
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,
