Livestock instead of lilies

Goat

Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, Virginia Beach, Va., started a tradition last year for Christmas and Easter. In addition to ordering traditional poinsettias and lilies to decorate the church, members had the chance to purchase livestock, specifically pigs and chicks, through the ELCA Good Gifts program.

The narthex was filled with paper pigs and chicks at Christmas and Easter to symbolize how many had been donated from congregational gifts. Twenty pigs ($600) and 470 chicks ($470) were donated.
