April is my last month at the church where I am the student intern minister (First Unitarian Universalist Society of Middleboro) and as one of my final services we will be having a Celebration and Blessing of the Animals. However, as the time gets closer, the logistics of this are starting to stress me a little. I have ordered the Blessing of the Animals Guidebook from UFETA and maybe there is good advice in there, but I’m wondering if others have been to such blessings and how they were conducted. Was it a Sunday morning service? Was it held outdoors? Was there a tent? Outdoor seating? Did people stand? Was there a limit on what animals could come or how many per person? If it wasn’t held during normal Sunday services, when was it held? Did a lot of people come? Did you get feedback that would be helpful to share?
Any ideas welcome. I’m very excited. But also not wanting chaos. :)
