Benediction: Proper 18 B

Here’s a commission and benediction for Proper 18 B, the fourteenth Sunday after Pentecost.  It was written by Nathan Nettleton.

Commission & Benediction: Proper 18 B

Go now, and invest your lives in the works of faith.
Make a name for yourselves for generosity and compassion.
Fulfill God’s holy law
by putting love into action as eagerly for others
as you would for yourselves.

And may God be your defender and provider;
May Christ Jesus dispel all that disturbs or disables you;
and may the Holy Spirit make you rich in faith
........and loving and merciful in action.

We go in peace to love and serve the Lord,
...In the name of Christ. Amen.
