The last time animals had more common sense than humans was when they flocked into the ark just before the flood. Okay and there was also Balaam’s talking donkey. Since then people have wisened up -or so we thought. An Anglican seeker and canine sensitive vicar recently went the extra mile for a church new comer.
St Peter’s Anglican Church in Toronto has since been deluged complaints from Christians all over Canada. Donald Keith, the dog’s owner, said he had taken his pet (Trapper) to the church because he had been told animals were welcome. He said that because he was newcomer the vicar invited him up in person to receive communion.
“The minister welcomed me and said come up and take communion, and Trapper came up with me and the minister gave him communion as well,” said Mr Keith.
“Then he bent his head and said a little prayer,” Mr Keith said.
“I thought it was a nice way to welcome me into the church,” he said. “I thought it was acceptable.” He added: “There was an old lady in the front just beaming when she saw this.
“Ninety nine-point-nine per cent of the people in the church love Trapper and the kids play with him.” He said one member of the congregation was unhappy about the vicar giving the dog communion and complained to the archbishop, Colin Johnson. – The Telegraph
