From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai
Come, Holy Spirit!
I am in the UK getting over my jetlag as I help mum sort out her house for sale! It is a task which requires a practical questioning of what is really important: after a lifetime of acquiring this and that, what do we need to keep and what can be thrown away?
At his Ascension, Jesus demonstrated that even keeping his physical presence on Earth wasn’t as important as his ability to send the Holy Spirit! While he held on to the physical, he couldn’t be with us everywhere and always through the Holy Spirit. This omnipresence is what we celebrate at Pentecost!
We live in the physical, but love, relationship, God, and truth, are beyond. These are the eternal things we should really value!
With the easing of Covid restrictions, most of All Saints regular attendees are travelling, so if you are in Chiang Mai this Sunday please attend and give Mark a congregation to preach and minister to!!!
Our scripture readings for this Sunday will be Acts 2:1-21, Romans 8:14-17, and John 14:8-17, 25-27, and we will be singing the hymns Come Down, O Love Divine; Spirit of God, Unseen as the Wind; O Breath of Life, Come Sweeping Through Us; and O God of Burning, Cleansing Flame!
Use this link to join us on Zoom this Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
Meeting ID: 548 801 501
Last week’s Sermon
Last week’s sermon, “That they may believe…“, can be seen here!”
A few of the group!
I am now in the UK, so Chili Night will then take a break while I am away in England. It will return on Tuesday 28th June!
This is a quiet season at All Saints after the many events of the last few months! More will be happening in the Autumn/Fall. Please hold our plans in your prayers!
