From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai
This Sunday we will celebrate the Feast of Corpus Christi. This centres around Jesus as given to us in the Eucharist, but can also remind us that we are the body of Christ, too! Hebrews 10:25 says that “we should not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”
June and July are always the low months for attendance at All Saints, as people travel and the international schools are on holiday. This year overall numbers have also been affected by the terrible air pollution and changes in visa regulations, but still we only had twelve people at worship last Sunday! If you are in Chiang Mai, then please join with us! Don’t think that you won’t be missed – you are missed! We are the body of Christ, and as we meet together we can refresh and support one another.
And this Sunday is Corpus Christi, when we give thanks for our access to the sacrament of Holy Communion. Please, come and receive. God is waiting and offering himself to us!
Our scripture readings for this Sunday will be Genesis 14:18-20, 1 Corinthians 11:23-26, and John 6:51-58, and we will be singing the hymns Alleluia Sing to Jesus, Thou Who at Thy First Eucharist, Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silent, and Lord Jesus Christ! The readings can be found via this link and past services and sermons can be viewed via the All Saints audio-visual page!
Latest Sermon Videos Available
Videos of the sermons for the last three weeks, along with us saying goodbye to the Tiptons and Pfaffs, are now available on the Audio-Visual Page! You can find them here!
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,
