Blogging toward Sunday

Saint Anthony Abbot Blessing the Animals, the Poor, and the Sick; Image via Wikimedia Commons

Our sermon series on nature continues with a look at animals. In preparation for worship, read Job 40:15-41:10 and Isaiah 11:6-9. What strikes you as important from each of these readings?

As you journey toward Sunday, may the following song of praise ( a version of Psalm 148) make you ever more aware and appreciative of God's wonderful creatures.

All dogs and cats, large and small:
Praise the Lord!
All rabbits, hamsters, and guinea pigs:
Praise the Lord!
All goldfish, guppies, and swimming creatures:
Praise the Lord!
All robins, wrens, and singing birds:
Praise the Lord!
All bats, squirrels, and raccoons:
Praise the Lord!
All horses, cows, and sheep:
Praise the Lord!
All lizards, snakes and creeping things:
Praise the Lord!
Every animal in the sky, the sea, and the forest:
Praise the Lord! [i]

May God continue to rain blessings down upon you this week. I look forward to worshiping with you on Sunday.
