The Hope Lutheran Church of River Falls congregation (pictured) held a blessing of the animals on their land in Sterling Ponds in early June. Pastor Sandy Johnson led the service with each owner taking part in the blessing of their pet. All the pets did well together and met new friends. The service included a song that talks about God backwards spells dog.
