Prepare the Way!

From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai


Worship last Sunday!

Dear Friends,


We had a wonderful service and potluck last week as we marked Advent Sunday.  

We will soon be in the rush of Christmas with all that that entails!  But now is the time to pause, to prepare our hearts for the coming of the Christ-child, Emmanuel!

The readings for the Second Sunday of Advent will be Isaiah 11:1-10, Romans 15:4-13, and Matthew 3:1-12, and we will be singing the Advent hymns O Come, O come Emmanuel; Song of Mary; Sing We the King Who is Coming to Reign; and Lo! He Comes with Clouds Descending!

Use this link to join on Zoom on Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
Meeting ID: 548 801 501
