To all you dogs and cats: don’t miss St. Andrew’s Blessing of the Animals this Sunday, Oct. 6th, at 4:30 on the lawn!
This wonderful post from Carol Barnwell from 2012 reminds us not to miss the great opportunities for evangelism that the Blessing of the Animals, and other similar events, offers. Each time a service spills out onto the front lawn, we have a chance to witness to and invite folks who previously might not have given the church a second thought.
Every service, every event we do, carries with it a host of opportunities to reach beyond our doors and into the community. If we can learn to look and listen for those opportunities, we might find ourselves growing in ways we never expected.
