From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai
All Saints last Monday!
Jesus said “Behold, I make all things new!”
This week we have had painters at All Saints, and this coming Sunday we should have a renewed white sanctuary, and a shiny new kitchen and office! Even the outside of our building is being renewed!
In our Gospel reading this week, Jesus heals a crippled woman and is attacked by the religious leaders for healing in the Sabbath. In other passages he describes them as “whitewashed tombs”. I am sure our newly painted church is not a whitewashed tomb, but we will be looking at true renewal this week at All Saints. Jesus healed the woman and met her need. Can we allow Jesus to renew us too?
Our scripture readings for this Sunday will be from Jeremiah 1:4-10, Hebrews 12:18-29, and Luke 13:10-17, and we will be singing the hymns O Worship the King, O Christ the Healer, Christ Be Our Light, 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!
New Teachers’ Potluck
Thanks to all who made last week’s potluck such a success! We had wonderful food and a great time of fellowship!
All Saints Trustees Meeting
Our next Trustees Meeting will be next Tuesday, 27th August, at 6 p.m. The trustees are: Mark Crawford, Helga Spring, Bill Moeller, Chris Tananone, and Caitlin Littleton. Please speak to me, or one of the trustees, if there is anything you would like them to discuss.
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,
