Sunday, 10th July 2022
is delivered in-person & on zoom by our minister, Revd. Chee Keong Yong
Our Gospel reading sees Jesus continuing on his journey towards Jerusalem. On the way, he was being approached by a young lawyer who desired to engage with him over a question about eternal life. Not content with the flow of the conversation, he probes further with a question as to who is my neighbour?
The question prompts Jesus to offer a parable that has come to be known as the “Parable of the Good Samaritan.” Most of us will be rather familiar with it. The parable involves several characters – the priest, the Levite, good Samaritan, the fallen man, the robbers, and the innkeeper.” The difficulty with preaching on this parable is that we are familiar with it. Are there any new insights that I can share with you?
The main point here is to see ourselves in the shoes of the fallen man. Did the man bring the situation upon himself? He knew the dangers of travelling alone perhaps along a road that is notorious for bandits. What was he thinking? Travelling alone invites trouble for it makes one vulnerable. So in the fallen state, who will be my neighbour?
The thing about parables is that it leads us to see Jesus (God). And I do mean all parables lead us back to Jesus. Where is Jesus in the parable? The priest? The Levite? Or the Samaritan?
This is the crux of the problem. Jews will have nothing to do with Samaritans. For the young lawyer to consider the Samaritan to be the neighbour is preposterous. And yet, the way the parable unfolded, the lawyer must conclude that the one who showed mercy proved to be the neighbour. He would not even acknowledge the Samaritan.
Similarly, Jesus is the outcast here. Can the outcast have a place at your table? Will you acknowledge that those whom you reject and despise, prove to be a neighbour in your time of need?
Come and join us this Sunday as we worship God together either in person or on Zoom.

(NOTES for in-person congregation)
At our new Location
SCC Creative Space Coffee Shop
Student Christian Center
328/1 Phyathai Road
A very short walking distance from BTS Ratchatewi. Click here for Google maps reference or follow the map near the top of this newsletter.
Please remember the COVID Code:
All are advised to follow social distancing to keep others safe. A temperature check is required. We have members who have been infected lately and we do not wish others to be infected. If you are not feeling well, please stay at home and join us on Zoom. For safety precautions, the ICB Council has advised against any form of fellowship events for the time being. Bottled water will be available.
If you plan to come in your own car:
It is best to enter Phayathai Road from the Patumwan intersection (at Discovery Center/MBK) and drive across Hua Chang (elephant head) Bridge, taking the left-most lane. Then, immediately over the bridge, turn left into the SCC/CCT compound just before Evergreen Place and Asia Hotel.
There are limited parking spaces (free) just inside the compound but if full, you can park in the CCT Tower Building at the back of this same compound (there maybe a small charge p/hr)
ICB Evening Service at
Bangkok Christian Guesthouse (BCGH)
has been suspended until further notice.
Fellowship is essential for the wellbeing of any true community – but it’s not so easy when we cannot all meet personally face-to-face, and have no social events.
At ICB, we wish to develop new ways to extend Christian fellowship among all of us during 2022. We invite you to help with your ideas for such fellowship activities.
