From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai
Palm Sunday is here!
Palm Sunday is upon us! We will parade into the church on Sunday waving palms and shouting hosanna, just as the crowds did on the first Palm Sunday two thousand years ago! Hosanna means deliver us, set us free, bring salvation. Are we crying out to God for ourselves, for others, and for the world? Or are we comfortable with the way things are?
Jesus came to turn the world upside down – he threw the merchants out of the Temple, challenged those in authority, and was crucified for it! How much are we prepared to act and pray to make this world a better place?
Our readings this Sunday will be Mark 11:1-11, Philippians 2:5-11, and Mark 14:1-11, and we will be singing the hymns Hosanna in the Highest, All Glory Laud and Honour, Hosanna Loud Hosanna, You are the King of Glory, and Ride on Ride on in Majesty! The readings can be found via this link!
You can view last week’s sermon via the All Saints audio-visual page!
Lent Study Groups – Last Chance!
For the first time this year we are having Lenten Study Groups. We are studying the book Speaking Christian by Marcus Borg.
In our final week, there will be two groups meeting: one meeting on Monday in Doi Saket at David and Shem’s house, and one meeting on Wednesdays in Hang Dong at William and Tarntip’s house.
As we approach Easter we will study chapter 9 and reflect on the meaning of this most holy of feasts!
