The San Juan Unitarians are doing a Blessing of the Animals service on the feast day of St. Francis, October 4th. I'm getting a Wiccan to give a witchy blessing, a Christian to give a Christian blessing, and a non-Maori to give a Maori blessing.
thought of you when I began to cast around for a Buddhist to give a Buddhist animal blessing.
This takes place during worship, Sunday, October 4th, starting at 10:30, and ending about 11:30 AM. Each blessing (Wiccan, Christian, Maori and Buddhist) would only be about a 30-second blessing. There are all kinds of other "blessing"-type stuff scattered throughout the worship service.
