From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai
Is lying always wrong?
This week’s readings look at lying! First we see Adam and Eve lying in the Garden of Eden, and then we see Jesus being accused of being crazy and demon-possessed and talking about “blaspheming the Holy Spirit”! What’s it all about?
Our readings this week will be Genesis 3:8-15, 2 Corinthians 4:13-5:1, and Mark 3:20-35, and we will be singing the hymns Now Thank We All Our God, Open My Eyes that I may See, Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart,and Great is Thy Faithfulness. The readings can be found via this link and past services can be viewed via the All Saints audio-visual page!
All Saints Hymnal
I am currently compiling the All Saints Hymnal. If you have any favourite hymns you would like us to include, please email me at iain@AllSaintsChiangMai.com. You can view our current list of music and details of when we have sung each hymn here!
The All Saints Trustees will be meeting on Thursday 7th June at 6pm. We have lots of important things to discuss including ideas for our building. I hope to be able to give more details to everyone in the coming weeks.
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. We have collected THB 4,050 so far.
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 worshipping with us,
