In the scriptures, the Lord compares Himself to a hen wanting to gather her chicks (Luke 13:34). Dugan has included more animals under the hen’s protective wings—the porcupine, skunk, shrew, spider, snake, rat, mole, and cockroach—to represent those who are sometimes rejected by the world but are loved by God.

"The Lord wants to gather us all."
