Today we had a Service of Animal Blessing at our Contemporary Worship. It was a beautiful day and the service was outside at our Sonrise Garden. We had a wonderful congregation of two-legged and four-legged friends. Everyone got along well and several of the dogs even joined in prayers and sang along with the band. There were big dogs and small dogs, a puppy and three cats. (The most stylish pet was a cat wheeled in a fancy cat stroller!) Only one of the dogs nipped at me while I was giving him his blessing. Fortunately he was easily distracted by the treat my worship assistant held in front of his nose!
Even our boy was blessed. Here is his 'blessing day' picture. Aren't we just the proud parents??
