In a local church i east central Illinois the FUMC (First United Methodist Church) will conduct its first ever “blessing of the pets. This will occur at a local park, and all pets need to be restrained.
Not surprised, however. When man-made corrupted religion promotes itself to the community such things are done. While the Lord loves all His creation, for whose benefit is this being done? Is your pet important to you? Do you want the Lord to bless your pet? Then go to the Lord in prayer and He will do exactly that. To have a service like this cheapens the nature of the word “service” in such a religious context.
