He is Ascended!

From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai

This Thursday is Ascension Day!  We will celebrate on Sunday!

Dear Friends,

It is with deep sadness that I have to announce the death of one of our most loved members, David Burdoin.  As most of you know, he had leukemia and this quickly allowed pneumonia to develop.  He died at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, with his husband, Shem, by his side.

David’s funeral will be on Monday 14th May at 2 p.m. at All Saints, followed by the committal at McKean Hospital Crematorium at 3:30 p.m.  There will be a reception to follow back at the church.  He is home with the Lord now and at peace.  Please continue to hold Shem in your prayers.

This Sunday we will celebrate the Ascension of Christ as we mark the last Sunday of the Easter Season.  Even as we share the sadness of a loved one passing, we also share the joy of the resurrection and the promise that there is more.  If God is for us, who can be against us?

Our readings this Sunday will be Acts 1:1-11, Ephesians 1:15-23, and Luke 24:44-53, and we will be singing the hymns Immortal Invisible God only Wise, Hail the Day that Sees Him Rise, Give me Jesus, and Lift High the Cross!

The readings can be found via this link and past services can be viewed via the All Saints audio-visual page!

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 worshipping with us,

God bless,

Iain
