NY Times Article On Christianity and Animals
The October 15 edition of the NY Times has a wonderful article by Mark Oppenheimer on the fascinating of the love of animals and the Christian faith. We urge our friends to check it out. Here is a link which I hope will get you there: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/10/15/us/pet-ministries-are-growing-in-churches.html
John is a retired pastor of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America who has served congregations for over 40 years, including in rural, suburban, campus ministry and urban settings. His love of Border Collie sheepdogs has been fortified by his many friendships with shepherds all around the world. Nothing he has ever or will ever accomplish is as significant as the patience God, his wife and his friends have shown in putting up with his deficiencies.
I attended your service to Bless the Animals last fall. Are you the Pastor of a Congreation? If so, which churh? I’ve been looking for a new church for awhile.
