From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai
Join us at All Saints, Chiang Mai!
We are a growing, living, people at All Saints, Chiang Mai. It has been a great privilege to welcome so many new people to worship with us at All Saints this January, and also to welcome Deacon Girard.
Lent is nearly upon us and we will begin our marking of the season with our pre-Lenten pancake potluck on Sunday 11th February. Ash Wednesday falls on Valentine’s Day this year – 14th February – and we have our Ash Wednesday service, beginning at 7 p.m. This will include the imposition of ashes.
For the first time this year we will be having Lenten Study Groups. We are going to study the book Speaking Christian by Marcus Borg.
In this easy to read book, Marcus Borg explores what key Christian words really mean – you might be surprised! When Jesus said “You must be born-again”, what was he talking about? Maybe not what you think… and what does salvation actual mean?
There will be three groups: one meeting on Mondays in Doi Saket, one meeting on Tuesdays in central Chiang Mai, and one meeting on Wednesdays in Hang Dong. Meetings will begin on 19th February at 7 p.m. and continue for six weeks!
Email: iain@AllSaintsChiangMai, or sign the sheet at the back of the church, to sign up and to order a copy of the book for THB250.
Our readings this Sunday will be Proverbs 8:1, 22-31, Colossians 1:15-20, and John 1:1-14, and we will be singing Jesus Shall Reign Where’er the Sun, Crown Him With Many Crowns, Give me Jesus, and Tell Out My Soul!
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,
