From Rev Iain Baxter, All Saints Chiang Mai
Fighting with God. Is it Biblical?
It was wonderful to be back yesterday and see old and familiar faces, along with some new ones! If you haven’t been for a while, why not come along? Life can sometimes seem a bit of a battle. This week I have been fighting with Thai immigration, cancelled bank cards, and deflating car tires, not to mention a collapsing office chair! But should we be fighting with God?
On the face of it fighting with God does not appear to be a very Christian action, yet Jacob did it, so perhaps we should too? Find out more this week!
Our bible readings for this Sunday are Genesis 32:22-31, Romans 9:1-5, and Matthew 14:13-21, and we will be singing the hymns Praise with Joy the world’s Creator, Dear Lord and Father of Mankind, Take My Life and Let it Be, and Will you come and Follow Me? 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 share the presence of the risen Jesus in our lives! We hope to see you soon and that you will enjoy worshiping with us,
