Prayer Request

From Karen Burns:

Russell Smith (Burns’ grandson) is having surgery on 04 October to remove a piece of bone from his skull that is rubbing on his spinal cord.  This is a one time deal, not something that has to be repeated as he grows.  Please pray for Dave and Andrea (she is rather anxious) and Russell.  Also, Paul and Karen will be leaving on Wednesday to visit Julia in Albuquerque, then on to Abilene to watch Russell’s older siblings while he is in the hospital.  Pray for their travels and their visits.  Thank you.

O Lord Jesus Christ, who loves little children and did yourself live as a child on the earth: Have mercy upon our little brother Russell and make him to know and feel your nearness as he undergoes surgery.  We thank you that you have brought him this far in recovery and pray that he will be restored to full health so that he may live for your you, to the glory of your holy name, who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever.  Amen

Blessing of the Animals

From Jenny Downey at Christ the King REC:

The annual St. Francis Day Blessing of the Animals will be held at 2:15 on Wednesday, October 4th. Pet owners may bring their caged or leashed animal friends to be blessed. Refreshments, including animal treats, will follow.

Fr. Wayne, Fr. Isaac and Fr. Chris Herman will bless our pets. While animals are rarely invited to church, this special event intends to represent God’s love for all his creatures. Fr. Wayne McNamara, rector of Christ the King Anglican Church and co-founder of Dominion Academy states, “God loves everything that He has made, and the Scriptures plainly tell us that animals matter to God. They serve us and wonderfully bless us in many ways, so it is fitting that this time every year we seek God’s special blessing for them, especially those that are most like us – the ones we have taken as pet companions.”

This tradition derives from St. Francis of Assisi’s love for animals. Francis was a Catholic friar and preacher who lived in the twelfth century and founded the Franciscan Order. Francis, whose feast day is October 4th, believed God’s love covered all creation and gave each creature dignity. Legend recounts Francis preaching a sermon to the birds, exhorting: “My sister birds, you owe much to God, and you must always and in everyplace give praise to Him.”

Dominion Academy hosts this event to affirm the ways all parts of creation—including animals— bring praise to God.
