From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai
How do you see the Trinity? Father, Son, and Holy Spirit? Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer? Benedictor, Lamb, and Dove? How can we understand such a complicated doctrine as three in one, one in three? We don’t really need to try. The important message is that God comes to us in different ways, and that Godself is community and relationship. Just as man was not created to be alone, so God is a company in fellowship, in love!
As many of you will know. Two rabbits have come into my possession. When they are together they are happy, they feel safe, they feel protected. We too were made to be in community – with God and each other – so let us not give up meeting together, but rather live in love and connection with one another!
Our scripture readings this Sunday will be Proverbs 8:1-4, 22-31, Romans 5:1-5, and John 16:12-15, and we will be singing the hymns Holy, Holy, Holy; We All Believe in One True God; Mothering God; and Tell Out My Soul! The readings can be found via this link and past services and sermons can be viewed via the All Saints audio-visual page!
Pentecost Sunday Potluck
Our Pentecost service was followed by a potluck to give us the opportunity to say goodbye to Nate, Muyoung, Cambree, and Lyla Tipton, and Kelsey and Taylor Pfaff. We had a wonderful time – although sad to say farewell to such good friends!
Saying a sad goodbye to the Tipton and Pfaff families!
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,
