All God’s creatures are welcome

All God’s creatures are welcome

All creatures great and small appear to know that they are welcome at the Church of St Paul in Barriere as shown by this recent photo of deer standing in the entrance to the church. The Anglican hymn, “All Things Bright and Beautiful”, was first published in 1848 by Mrs. Cecil Frances Alexander in her Hymns for Little Children. The hymn is still sung today in many other Christian denominations. The first verse of the hymn is: “All things bright and beautiful, All creatures great and small, All things wise and wonderful, The Lord God made them all.”
