Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


Blessing of the Animals

King of Peace provided the liturgy, jointly officiated by the Rev. Frank Logue, Gabe Cummings (Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic) and Verdell Griffin (Wheelter Street Church of God) in Waterfront Park in Saint Marys. The service is sponsored by the Camden County Humane Society and held in conjunction with St. Marys' Rock Shrimp Festival. This year we blessed hamsters, a lizard (yes by laying on hands), and a chicken in addition to the usual assortment of canines, all well behaved.

    The Blessing of the Animals is the practice that attracted and brought me into the Episcopal Church in the mid-1990's. Any church that values God's animals and not just His human creation has my membership! I love your photos.
    I am a member of Holy Spirit in Cumming, GA.
