From Rev Iain Baxter, All Saints Chiang Mai
Do you have faith to step out of the boat?
This week’s Gospel reading sees Jesus walking on the water and Peter leaping out of the boat only to lose faith and start sinking. What about us? Are we comfortable cruise passengers or are we prepared to abandon ship without a lifeboat? Sometimes God calls upon us to step out in faith! Find out more this Sunday.
Our bible readings for this Sunday are Genesis 37:2-28, Romans 10:9-15, and Matthew 14:22-33, and we will be singing the hymns Holy, Holy, Holy, Jesus calls us o’er the tumult, Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart, and Christ is made the Sure Foundation!
Last Sunday we welcomed the Rev. Deacon Gene Bourquin as our new deacon at All Saints. It will be a joy to have him ministering with us!
And last Sunday we also had the great delight to welcome Yotin Tiewtrakul as our guest organist. He is director of Music at the Anglican Church of Hamburg, Germany. It was wonderful to have such a gifted musician help lead our worship!
And then at the end of the service we were joined by Alan Tsang, Assistant Director of Music at St. John’s Cathedral, Hong Kong! We are getting famous friends!
