PET CORNER

When the Lord God had formed out of the ground all the beasts of the field and the birds of the air, he brought them to the man to see what he would call them; for that which the man called each of them would be its name.
Genesis 2:19

.

We are never nearer the heart of God than when we share our life with domestic pets. Everything from the heart of the animal operates in unconditional fashion, ever reminding us that God’s love, too, is unconditional. They are our family, those gifts from God that fill our world with such beauty and devotion. They are our link to an ancient harmony once kept in “The Garden” and a precursor to the unimagined beauty of the life promised.

What better place to offer insights and tips in caring for and sharing in the life of our pets than here.

We invite you to share with us, by visiting the STEWARD’S CORNER and sending us your stories, tips and pictures.

Please visit our PET PRAYER LINE to view/offer prayers for pets (and owners) in need.

Please visit our PET PRAYER LINE SUBMISSION page to send us your prayer request. (It will be posted to our website within 24 hours.)
