An Animal Blessing
Unity OKC is having a special event, a blessing of the animals on Saturday, May 15. From 11:00-12:00.
What does it mean to bless our animals? The blessing of each animal, by its name, brings health, healing and life, mediated from God for the benefit of the animal and in its relationship to his human partners. Care is taken not to reinforce the separation of human animals as set apart from other animals as we co-exist together in relationship with each other.
Blessing of the animals can be for the animal itself or for the human-animal relationship. A pet blessing can apply to pets, companion animals, agricultural and working animals, or animals on which mankind depends. We pray for our animals not only because we love them, but also because they are God’s beloved creatures. Spirit made everything that inhabits earth, including our pets that we hold so dear to our hearts, and the Bible tells us that one sign of a righteous person is that they take care of animals. So, join us for this blessing of our pets. Please bring leashes and travel crates for the protection of all the animals together.
