From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai
Last Sunday’s Service!
We has a wonderfully busy time last weekend. On Saturday more than a dozen All Saints people were involved with the British Coronation Celebration, joining thousands of others braving the heat at the Consul’s Garden. Then on Sunday Archbishop Ron Langham led our worship and joined us for a packed potluck at the vicarage!
This weekend most of us are off on retreat at the RungNara Pool Villa Resort in SanSai. (More details below) Father Peter will be leading worship at All Saints for those not retreating!
The readings for the Sixth Sunday of Easter will be from Acts 17:22-31, 1 Peter 3:13-22, and John 14:15-21, and there will be two hymns: When Morning Gilds the Skies and Love Divine, all Loves Excelling!
There will be no Zoom broadcast this week, but you can watch hundreds of past sermons and services on the website’s Audio-Visual page.
