From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai
Which one are you?
Most of us are doers – we like to get things done! The active people in the church are like that, after all, James said that faith without works is dead. But when the doer, Martha, complained to Jesus about the listener, Mary, Jesus said that Mary had “chosen the better part!” Do we find it easier to do than to find time to really listen to Jesus? How can we become better listeners and so better disciples too?
Our scripture readings for this Sunday will be Genesis 18:1-10, Colossians 1:15-28, and Luke 10:38-42, and we will be singing the hymns All Creatures of our God and King; Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee; When the Music Fades; and Lift High the Cross!
