Publishers 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."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Wonderful Book  Jan 18, 2007
The book was a wonderful way of enforcing the love we feel toward the animals we live with and the love from God toward us all.
Rich and practical guide  Sep 1, 2006
A rich and practical guide to reflecting on our relationship with the creatures who share our households, All God's Creatures is well-grounded theologically. At the same time, Debra Farrington has provided a wealth of practices and prayers for allowing us to see these animal companions as sacramental signs of God's own work and mercy. She invites us--urges us--to move beyond romanticized notions of "having a pet" and calls us to see the inherently holy connections between people and the animals who share our lives.

I have already given this book to six other people, and have found it to be a needed resource.
If you love aniamls, you'll love this!  Aug 30, 2006
Reading this book has not only changed how we treat the cats and goldfish who share our home, it has changed the conversations in our house with and about our animal companions. When my six-year-old asked about getting a hamster, I told her it is a big decision to invite another animal into our home. I would never have begun the conversation this way before reading Debra Farrington's book.

This is a sound theological, practical and engaging examination of our relationship with the animals we invite into our homes, covering everything from naming to feeding to playing. The book also offers ways to be with aniamls who are sick or dying and includes rituals for burial. I'm planning on giving it to most everyone on my Christmas list!
