Blessing of the Animals

On Sunday, October 4th we gathered outside on the front lawn of the church campus to be one with creation, after the example of St. Francis of Assisi, whose Feast Day we also observed.

God has given us a beautiful earth, full of majesty and glory. All creation is pleasing unto God; therefore, let all creation praise God's holy name. 

It is up to us to be good stewards of creation, not just the land, the seas and the sky, but all of earth's inhabitants. 

We give thanks to God, through Jesus Christ our savior and Lord, for the animal companions entrusted in our care. May we bring each other joy and peace, and be a reminder of the goodness of God's creation. 

Thanks be to God for the animal companions in our lives, past, present and future.

Whom shall I send?

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
- Isaiah 6:8, NRSV

From Eddie McCoven, church staff member:

We give thanks to God and rejoice with our beloved sister, Cyndi Jones, for her ordination and call to ministry.

Cyndi was a part of our faith community for a year as our pastoral intern. She learned a lot from us, and we equally learned a lot from her. 

She will serve the worshiping community of Atonement Lutheran Church here in San Diego, as well as serve the Pacifica Synod for Disability Awareness ministry. 

Our prayers are with her as she lives out her call to ministry in Christ's holy church.

Here's the full video from the ordination:
