Fifteen animals were blessed


Spirit Lake Presbyterian Church drive-up services are still being held on Sundays at 10:30 a.m. They are broadcast on 88.1 F.M. and livestreamed on the church’s Facebook page. Adult Sunday school is held at 9:30 a.m. The Rev. Dick Poppen speaks at 9:30 a.m. Sundays on KWAT radio.

During animal blessing day at the church on Oct. 11, some people brought animals by car or trailer, and others walked them down the road. A child’s play stroller carried kittens. In all, eight dogs, two ponies, one horse and four kittens were given a treat and blessing by the Rev. Jerod Jordan.

Oct. 11 was Mission Fest. Jim Hulbert, who served in Vietnam as an American soldier, spoke of his return visit to the country — a memorable visit for him. It was also communion Sunday.

The wind blew hard
and leaves were falling
last week.
As I sat in my car
with the window opened a ways,
a leaf blew in
and landed on my lap.
I picked it up and placed it
out of the window.
Did I miss something here?
I think so.
