Lenten Studies!

From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai

Last Sunday at All Saints

Dear Friends,

We are now in the Season of Lent, and we began our new liturgy last Sunday.  The colour of Lent is Purple for that is the colour of penitence and repentance, but to me it seems for too bright, far too royal for that.

Perhaps it is a better focus if we remember that Jesus was dressed in purple on the night before his crucifixion and mocked as “King of the Jews!”  And yet, that is who he is – and more.  We can take the colour purple as a symbol of that journey to the cross, and of love poured out for us all!

Our scripture readings for this Sunday will be Genesis 12:1-4, Romans 4:1-5, 13-17, and John 3:1-17, and we will be singing the hymns The God of Abraham Praise, God Whose Almighty Word, Here is Love, and All My Hope on God Is Founded!  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.

All means All!

Last week’s sermon, All means All, is now available here on YouTube!

In December we held our Festival of Christmas Carols at Tham Pratheep Church.  This Thursday, some of the All Saints trustees will be meeting with elders of Tham Pratheep to see how we can develop stronger ties.

Please hold this in your prayers.

Gymkhana Lunch

Our weekly lunch at the Gymkhana Club will again be at midday on Thursday!  Please feel free to join us!

God bless,
