Product Description

Millions of people today live with a dog, cat, or other domestic animal that's considered not just a pet, but a family member. Many of these same people bring their animals for a blessing at their church each year near the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals, sensing that there is something sacred in their relationship.

In All God's Creatures, Farrington explores what it means to live in a godly relationship with domestic animals. Just as God covenanted with Noah and all the animals when the flood waters receded, Farrington argues that we live in a covenantal relationship with those animals we bring into our homes, creatures that God created and called good. In this simple and practical book she examines what that relationship means in terms of the everyday life of an animal. Prayers and simple rituals for celebrating the animals, as well as suggestions for congregational blessings of the animals, are included.

Publisher's Description

All God's Creatures provides a complete Blessing of the Animals liturgy, as well as other prayers and rituals, for use in church or anywhere that animals are blessed! If you live with a dog, cat, or some other domestic animal, you already know that these treasured creatures are not just pets, but members of the family. Debra K. Farrington, who has lived with animals most of her life, explores the spiritual aspects of our relationships with these beloved friends--from everyday caring for their needs, to marking the extraordinary moments of birth, illness and death. Full of warmth and wisdom, this essential resource includes chapters on: Training and Compassion-and how to balance the two Caring for the Sick--ethical concerns Rest in Peace--rituals, blessings, and more Tell Me Your Name--discerning the personality of your companion “By viewing companion animals as a gift from God rather than objects that do the will of humans, Debra Farrington helps owners realize a greater sense of responsibility toward their own pets, and shows how the humane care and training of their animals leads to a more fulfilling experience for both.” - Barbara Demarest, canine and feline behavior consultant A percentage of the author’s profits on this book will be donated to PAWS of Central Pennsylvania, a no-kill animal rescue and spay/neuter group.

Author Bio

Born in Schenectady, New York, Debra Farrington received her B.A. from Scripps College and her M.A. from the University of California, Berkeley. After managing multi-million-dollar bookstores for years, she took over a quiet little seminary bookstore in Berkeley, hoping to get off the fast-track. After a few years there, her writing career began, and she was soon well known in religious publishing. Ms. Farrington's first step in her writing career was book reviews for Publishers Weekly, and from that she went on to become a contributing editor for Publishers Weekly Religion Bookline. She continues to write for magazines such as The Lutheran, Spiritualitiy and Health, and contributes to Beliefnet.com. Debra was awarded the Catholic Press Association's 2000 Book Award, with first place in the Family Life category for her book, One Like Jesus: Conversations on the Single Life. Her other books include Living Faith Day by Day and Romancing the Holy. In 1997 Ms. Farrington became the editorial director at Morehouse Publishing, and recently has been named publisher of the company. She also leads retreats and teaches classes in spiritual development on topics such as singles issues, rule of life, and prayer and meditation. In her spare time, she enjoys quilting, reading religious murder mysteries, watching ice-skating with the same commitment football fans have about their sport, playing with her cats, bird-watching, and being quiet every opportunity she gets.
