(based on Romans 11:1-2, 29-32)
As you go from here, remember this:
God’s gifts and God’s call can never be taken away—
they can never be cancelled or rescinded.
They are irrevocably yours.
So go with confidence and joy to serve God and one another.
And may the blessing of God—
Father, Son and Holy Spirit—
be among you and within you
wherever you find yourselves this week.
