From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai
Jesus with Moses and Elijah!
A Potluck will follow the service this Sunday.
Ash Wednesday Service – Next Week!
Lent is almost upon us, we will celebrate “Pancake Sunday” this week, but on the Sunday before Lent the Gospel reading is always the story of Jesus’ transfiguration. Before his all to human temptations and death on the cross are remembered, we remember Jesus shining with the glory of God!
What is the Transfiguration about? It is the revelation of who Jesus really is – the Son of God! And Moses and Elijah appear to testify about this on behalf of the Law and the Prophets. What about us? How do we see Jesus? And are we prepared to reveal who we really are too? Do we even know who that is?
The readings this week will be Exodus 24:12-18, 2 Peter 1:16-21, and Matthew 17:1-9, and we will be singing the hymns Praise to the Lord, the Almighty; Shine, Jesus, Shine; Transfiguration Hymn, and Christ be our Light! Our choir will be singing Days of Elijah.
