"Healers Among Us – Blessing of the Animals Service"
Rev. Heather Janules
Worship Associate: Lucy Lowenthal
We humans with the significant intelligence and opposable thumbs have served as stewards of the earth, including our companions, the animals. This service of honoring and blessing the animals in our lives will reflect on how they care for – and sometimes heal – us.
This worship service is our religious education for the morning so there are no traditional RE classes. To honor the needs of the allergic, our 9 a.m. service will include virtual animals only, while friendly, vaccinated and leashed/contained live animals are welcome at the 11 a.m. service. Humans with live animals should gather in the courtyard by 10:30 a.m. to line up for the Animal Parade. If you would like to honor or remember an animal that cannot be brought to church that morning, please email their photo, along with their name, to Heather Janules at email@example.com by midnight on Friday, October 17.
The Sunday Morning Forum offers members and friends an opportunity to discuss a broad range of contemporary issues and explore their ethical and religious dimensions. We meet at 10:10 a.m. in the Chalice House.
