From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai
We are the Body of Christ!
As we continue our voyage through Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians, Paul again emphasises the importance of being united. In our Gospel reading, Jesus shares the same message: be reconciled to one another! It doesn’t matter how we came to faith, our denominational background, or our favourite style of worship, what matters is that we are one in Christ and love one another! Let us meet together this week as one people, united in love!
Our scripture readings this Sunday will be Deuteronomy 30:15-20, 1 Corinthians 3:1-9, and Matthew 5:21-26, and we will be singing the hymns Praise to the Lord the Almighty, They’ll know we are Christians, One Bread One Body, and Oh for a thousand Tongues to Sing!
Past services and sermons can be viewed via the All Saints audio-visual page! This is a great place to catch up if you’ve been away! Each sermon only lasts around 15 minutes.
Chiang Mai Pride 2020
This year’s Chiang Mai Pride march and events will be on Saturday 22nd February. People from All Saints are again invited to march behind our “Christians at Pride” banner. We will meet at the Chiang Mai Religion Practice Center at 5 p.m. (This is at the bottom of the Thaphae Gate road, across from the Governor’s Mansion.) The Parade will begin at 7 p.m.
All are welcome to join!
Pancake Sunday Potluck!
There are only two more Sundays before Lent, so on Sunday 23rd February we will have our, now traditional, Pancake Sunday Potluck. Pancakes will be provided and you are ask to bring savory or sweet toppings to share!
Ash Wednesday Service – 26th February
Ash Wednesday is on 26th February. We will have a special solemn service at 7 p.m. which will include the imposition of ashes.
We are studying Desmond and Mpho Tutu’s book, The Book of Forgiving. Copies are available to be purchased on Sunday or at the group! We meet on Thursdays at 1:30 p.m. at the Gymkhana Club (following lunch). Email if you need directions.
All are welcome – I hope you can join us!
Our weekly lunch at the Gymkhana Club will again be at midday, today (Thursday)! Please feel free to join us!
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,
