If we could talk to the animals... and if they could talk to us!

Sunday Breakfast
Sunday Breakfast Service

I was intrigued by a note in Hutton Rudby's notices that asked anyone coming to the Sunday breakfast to bring a cuddly toy animal. So I went along with my friend Jimbo curious to see what it would be like. There was plenty for us to choose for our breakfast: cereals, fruit, yoghurts, sweet and savoury pastries and hot drinks. We soon settled down with our breakfast as other animals gathered for their breakfasts. There were some amazing creatures: a camel, a sheep, a monkey, an elephant and a duck that survived a fire!

Once we had a bite to eat, we sung some songs and heard the story from the Bible of a donkey that could talk! We even spent a bit of time thinking about what animals in our world would say to us if they could talk. For example, a polar bear might ask where the ice has gone or a tuna why they are being over-fished. The main message was that we should listen to our animals because they have something to say to us! I agree with that and, if anyone is listening to me, I should certainly like to go back to another Sunday Breakfast!

March's Sunday Breakfast is on 11th and will be themed on Mothering Sunday when all the ladies in the church will receive flowers.
