Blessing of the Animals
“At Your Service: Reflections on Guide Dogs”
April 24, 4:00 p.m.
This year our annual Blessing of the Animals will be held outdoors at the circular bench on the South/East corner of our property. We hope that by moving locations from inside the Sanctuary to the outdoors more people will feel comfortable bringing their furry companions and our neighbors might feel welcome to join. It is always a lively, fun event, with many dog friends but also cats, hamsters, snakes, turtles, and goldfish – you never know what pet friends may show up!
Job 12: 7-10 – “But ask the animals, and they will teach you; the birds of the air, and they will tell you; ask the plants of the earth,* and they will teach you; and the fish of the sea will declare to you. Who among all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this? In his hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of every human being.”
