Commission & Benediction
(based on Romans 13: 8-14)
As you go from here,
remember to love.
For love is what God asks of us;
it is the very heart and soul
of what it means to follow Jesus Christ.
So go from here to love and serve God
by loving and serving those you meet.
And may God—
who loved us first, and who showed us what real love looks like—
be with you and among you
wherever you find yourself in the coming week. Amen.
