The friendly beasts

From Eddie McCoven, church staff member:

We gathered for a brief Blessing of the Animals observance out on the front lawn of the church campus.

Our gathering reminds us of St. Frances of Assisi, who taught of giving thanks to God for all creation, especially our animal companions. 

St. Francis is also considered the author of a common prayer Christians say for peace.
