A note from Wild Goose



When we did our survey about the kinds of themes you wanted liturgies on, some of you requested services relating to pets. Now, one of our regular liturgy-writers, Thom Shuman, has provided the lovely blessing service below.

Also this week, there is another download from Wild Goose Chase, and a collection of graces and prayers relating to the sources of our food, from the book Blessed Be Our Table.
