From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai

Publish abroad his wonderful name!


Dear Friends,

The word broadcasting does not occur in the Bible, but the word publishing occurs 25 times in the King James Bible.  It is not talking about printing a book though, but rather about making news public!

Of course, broadcasting has more than one meaning also.  It can mean radio or TV, but can also mean declaring news publicly as we are urged to do in this week’s New Testament reading.  In addition, farmers can broadcast seed as they scatter it on the fields.  This reminds us of our Gospel reading this week, where Jesus compares the Kingdom of God to seeds growing secretly under the ground only to burst forth.

So how are we to broadcast the Good News of Jesus – shout from the rooftops or work carefully and quietly?  Find out at All Saints this Sunday.

Those who don’t wish to attend in person, can also join us on Zoom and we will livestream our service this Sunday.

Use this link to join this Sunday on Zoom at 10 a.m.
Meeting ID: 548 801 501

You can watch last week’s service here!

Our scripture readings for the Second Sunday after Trinity will be Ezekiel 17:22-24, 2 Corinthians 5:6-17, and Mark 4:26-34, and we will be singing the hymns O Worship the King, In Christ alone my hope is Found, Give me Jesus, and Before the Throne of God Above!

It’s wonderful that we can again be together in person and share the good news that Christ is risen and that God’s love for us, and the world, never ends!

People to Pray for…

Please continue to pray for Bill Moeller and Warren Funnell.  Bill has been diagnosed with liver cancer and is in particular need of our prayers at this time.  Please pass on any messages you have for Bill via Gene or me.
 Also, please pray for those older people in our congregation who are feeling shut-in and isolated as they stay home because of the increase in Covid-19 in Chiang Mai.

Potluck and Choir

Our wonderful choristers will be singing in church again on 20th June and 4th July and we will be have a special potluck on 4th July!  See Phyllis about what to bring!

Moving House

I will be moving house of Thursday 1st July.  If you’d like to offer help or even just moral support then let me know!  Pizza and drinks will be provided!  

My new house is in the Doi Ing mooban on the Canal Road between Huay Kaew and the International Convention Center. It should be a great venue for future potlucks, and other church events, too!  Still only 15 minutes from church!

My mum will arrive in August!

Wednesday Lunch

Our weekly lunch at the Gymkhana Club will continue next Wednesday at midday under the trees.  You don’t have to be a member and all are welcome!

Weekly Offering to All Saints

You can still donate in person or online.  Thank you for your support and love for All Saints and all we are trying to do together.  God has shown that he is mighty and we are in his hands!

Come Holy Spirit!  Hallelujah!

God bless,

Father Iain
