We are One Body!

From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai

All together on Christmas Morning

Dear Friends,

Thanks to Mark Crawford for leading the worship last Sunday and to all those involved.  I hear all went will once someone arrived with the key!  I shall be back this Sunday after a much needed break.

In this week’s epistle, Paul reminds us that we are all one body, and then in the Gospel reading Jesus declares his mission to release the captives and preach good news to the poor!  That is who we are – the body of Christ – one people called to build God’s kingdom and declare God’s love!

Our readings will be Nehemiah 8:1-8, 1 Corinthians 12:12-31, and Luke 4:14-21, and we will be singing the hymns O Worship the King, Called as Partners in Christ’s Service, One Bread One Body, and Lord Jesus Christ (Living Lord)!

Deacon Gene

Gene will be back with us next Thursday for a short visit!  It will be wonderful to have him back!

Meanwhile, here are three great chances to hear him preach:
