Who’s the Boss?

From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai

Jesus heals a blind man!


Dear Friends,

“I don’t believe it!”  Jesus arrived back in Nazareth in this week’s Gospel reading, and the people couldn’t believe or accept his teaching!  The text says Jesus was amazed at their unbelief. In the same way, the Pharisees and Sadducees also failed to accept his authority.  But what is spiritual authority?  Do we have it at All Saints and how can it connect to spiritual abuse?  Find out more this Sunday at All Saints.

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

Our scripture readings for the Fifth Sunday after Trinity will be from 2 Samuel 5:1-5, 9-10, 2 Corinthians 12:2-10, and Mark 6:1-13, and we will be singing the hymns Praise with joy the world’s Creator, I the Lord of Sea and Sky, Will you come and Follow Me, and Go forth and tell!

Mark’s dramatic sermon from last Sunday can be found here!

Dedication at the Youth Charity Foundation

There will be a special event this Saturday night, 3rd July, at House of Grace to dedicate their new building.  The event begins with a worship service at 5 p.m. which will be followed by dinner. 

Note: this is not at the YCF main compound!!!

If you would like to drive in convoy (or share a car) come to my new house at 4 p.m. (Directions to my new house in item below!)

Gifts for YCF in memory of Bill

THB 32,000 was collected last Thursday in memory of Bill Moeller.  Thanks to all who worked so hard to give Bill a fitting send off!  He will be sorely missed!  Bill’s partner, Mee, wishes to share his thanks for these kind gifts and for all the love he has been shown by so many from All Saints.  He will present the money to YCF at their special event at The House of Grace this Saturday.

Bill’s sister, Marilyn, also sent the following message:

I watched the You Tube of Bill’s funeral.  Thank you for your wishes. It made me feel like l was there with you. Please tell everyone at All Saints how much we appreciate all the wonderful tributes to Bill, his absence leaves a big hole in my heart.

I thought that Mee and all the Ministry Team did a splendid job to make the whole time a wonderful tribute to Bill and just as he had hoped that it would be.

Bill was a wonderful man, may he rest in peace and rise in glory!

You can watch the Celebration of Bill’s Live here!

Potluck and Choir – This Sunday!

Our wonderful choristers will again be singing in church this week and we will be have a special potluck following the service!  All are welcome!

Moving House

I am moving house this 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 Ing Doi 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!

If you want to come, be at the new house from 11 a.m. onwards.  Here is the address, map and link:

9/65 Ban Ing Doi,
Kan Klong Chonprathan Road, (Canal Road)
Tambon Chang Phueak, 
Mueang Chiang Mai, 
Chiang Mai 50000

The best way is to drive up Huaykaew Road past Maya towards Chiang Mai University, turn right onto Canal Road, go through one set of traffic lights, and Ban Ing Doi is on the left over a small white bridge.

Here is the Google Maps link!

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
