Blessing of the Animals
Sermon by Rev. Shawn Newton.
This Sunday, you are invited to bring your pets (or photos of pets, or stuffed animals) to our Sunday morning service for our Blessing of the Animals to celebrate World Animal Day. We welcome all animals that are on a leash or in a carrier of some kind. So, bring your dogs and cats, your turtles and your goldfish, your ferrets and your guinea pigs. (If you bring your spiders or snakes, just please don’t tell me…)
There will be water and treats available for the pets, as well as a litter box and clean-up baggies should the need arise (we kindly request that dogs be taken to the park across the street rather than the Secret Garden). The library will be our allergen-free zone and Benadryl will be available for those who need it. Join us for this memorable celebration of the place animals hold in our lives and in our world.
In love and faith,
