From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai
All Saints last Sunday!
Being free is all about the ability to make choices – that’s the joy of being alive! In our Old Testament reading, Moses urges the Israelites to choose to follow God. He says: Choose life so that you and your descendants may live, loving the Lord your God, obeying him, and holding fast to him.
Jesus, too, asks us to make a choice and make sure that we count the cost of being his disciple. It may not always be an easy choice, but this is the decision that is put before us. Let us way up the cost as we worship together this Sunday.
Our scripture readings for this Sunday will be from Deuteronomy 30:15-20, Philemon 1-7, and Luke 14:25-33, and we will be singing the hymns When Morning Gilds the Skies, I have decided to follow Jesus, I the Lord of Sea and Sky, and Guide Me O Thou Great Jehovah!
The readings can be found via this link and past services and sermons can be viewed via the All Saints audio-visual page!
Be Still – in the presence of the Lord
Be still and know that I am God…
November and December will be busy months at All Saints. September and October will be quieter with no big special events or services! Let us take time to spend time with one another, and with God, for God is not always found in the earthquake, wind, or fire, but in that still small voice!
We are not called to strive but to worship and gather together – rejoicing in God and loving one another!
