All Creatures, Great and Small

Beginning in 1989, the Blessing of Animals has been an annual service at Duke Chapel. These services (b&w photo) included liturgical dancers and guest speaker Andrew Linzey, author of Christianity and the Rights of Animals. Over the years, the popular ceremony has attracted pet lovers with snakes, iguanas, guinea pigs, cats, dogs, and other critters furry, feathered, or finned.
