From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai
Anger is a very natural and human emotion. Jesus was angry at times when faced with hypocrisy and injustice, and anger isn’t necessarily always wrong. But in this week’s epistle, Paul writes “Be angry but do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger…” What does this mean to us? How should we handle anger and how do we keep loving, even in the midst of anger and injustice?
Our scripture readings this week will be 1 Kings 19:4-8, Ephesians 4:25-5:2, and John 6:35, 41-51, and we will be singing the hymns When Morning Gilds the Skies, I am the Bread of Life, One Bread One Body, and When in our Music God is Glorified!
Theology on Tap
Theology on Tap will restart next week! We will meet on Friday 17th August at 7 p.m. at the UN Irish Pub. This is a great opportunity to have a drink, or a meal, and have an open conversation about some aspect of Christian theology. No previous knowledge is required, just come with your eyes open and your brain engaged! No view is too strange or too simple! All are very welcome!
All Saints Hymnal
The draft of the All Saints Hymnal is now complete including most of the hymns we have sung regularly over the last five years. I have now to add in the new suggestions you have submitted!
Please let me have any other ideas as soon as possible, or you will miss this chance to help develop our worship at All Saints!
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,
