Foundational! What is foundational in your life?

From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai

How strong is your foundation?

Dear Friends,

This week’s Gospel reading contains the famous passage about the wise man building his house upon the rock, and the foolish man building his house upon the sand!  The important thing is the foundation – a part of the building which is usually not seen.  Metaphorically, we can apply this to our lives: what is our foundation?  Jesus said that if we hear is words and act on them, then we are building a strong foundation for our lives!  This will be the theme of our worship this Sunday.

Our readings this week will be Deuteronomy 11:18-21, 26-28, Romans 1:16-17, 3:22-31, and Matthew 7:21-29, and we will be singing the hymns Let All the World in Every Corner Sing, Let us Build a House, For the Bread Which You Have Broken, and Christ is made the Sure Foundation!  The readings can be found via this link and past services can be viewed via the All Saints audio-visual page!

Memorial for David Burdoin

It has been suggested that it would be good to commission a new altar in memory of David.  He was one of our church trustees and the Eucharist was deeply meaningful to him.   Our current altar is only an ordinary metal-legged table.  We would like something made of wood which could bear a plaque in David’s memory.  We could have something beautiful carved here in Chiang Mai!  Please see Richard our treasurer.

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
