Going to the Animals

Delivered 10/6/13 by Rev. Dr. Marjorie Matty
Do you have a special somebody in your family that has four legs and holds a special place in your heart? Or maybe you have a two-legged pal with feathers or even a no legged companion with scaly yet supple skin? First Parish of Sudbury welcomes your interspecies friends and family to worship with us on October 6th at 10:00am. Please bring your pals to worship in cages, crates and on leashes for the blessing of the animals. For those extra special well-loved family members of the stuffed animal variety, and yes even your “My Little Pony” can come to worship this Sunday to be blessed! This will be an intergenerational worship and if you bring large animals the blessing will continue outdoors for horses, sheep, llamas or even those occasional white elephants that hang around. All are welcome as long as they are well behaved and not aggressive.
