From the Rev. Iain Baxter, All Saints Chiang Mai
This week we come to the end of our Season of Remembrance as we mark the Transgender Day of Remembrance. The official day is 20th November, but we will be using our service this Sunday to remember those who have been killed, or are discriminated against, due to their gender identity or expression.
As Christians, we believe that all people are made in the image of God and we are committed to reaching out in love to all God’s children. We will be joined by some people from M-Plus as we worship together.
Our readings for this Sunday are Isaiah 56:1-8, Acts 8:26-40, and Matthew 19:3-13, and we will be singing the hymns Song of Mary, Stand up stand up for Jesus, Beauty for Brokenness, and Let Us Build a House!
