Thank God for Pets!

Sunday morning is a time to worship with family and friends, but for those of us with furry family members, it’s also a time to stare into mournful eyes and assure those staying home that we really, truly, are coming back.  Of course there are many good reasons why our pets cannot join us for worship on Sunday mornings, but heartstrings still tug as we walk out the door.

Fortunately, there is one day a year when our pets can join us on Sunday: the Blessing of the Pets.  On October 9th, we gathered with our tiny toy poodles and massive malamutes in the Memorial Garden.  Pets received a special blessing from Pastor Jason and a tasty treat.
