Animal Blessing Service

April 19, 2020

by Reverend Anthony Makar and

David Blazer, Director of Music

We don’t know how long it’s going to take to get back to normal. But especially in a time filled with challenges and grief, we must do things that nurture our spirits. Spending time in nature is a way to do this. So is spending time with our animal companions: our cats, our dogs, our rabbits, and so on. Even mere videos of cats and dogs and other animals just being themselves feel sustaining. In honor of Earth Day coming up on April 22 (the 50th anniversary of it!), today’s worship celebrates the animal companions we love. If you have an animal companion, be sure to take a picture of it and post it for all to appreciate.
