December 9th “All God’s Critters: Advent Blessing of the Animals”
Rev. Dr. Jan Carlsson-Bull
In the tradition of St. Francis of Assisi, we remember the role of the animals at this season of blessing and birth, magic and miracle. Please bring your animal companions—live, photographed, stuffed teddy bears even—for this service of animal friendly songs, rare silences, attempted meditation, stories, a brief homily, and individual blessings of our creatures great and small for a healthy and happy life with you and holidays with some extra treats. And please bring your living and lively pets leashed or in a carrier and under your control at all times! If you happen to be allergic to dogs or cats, you may want to sit in the back of the sanctuary or even try another worship experience on this furry Sunday.
