Benediction: Epiphany 2 C

Here’s a closing commission and benediction for the second Sunday after Epiphany.  It was written by Nathan Nettleton.


Commission and Benediction


Go now, with your trust in Christ 
who has quenched your thirst with the wine of God’s love.
Do not be silent about God’s faithful love,
but shelter in the warmth of God’s wings
and keep your hearts honest.

And may God rejoice over you and call you “My Delight”;
May Christ Jesus bring out the best in you, to his glory;
And may the Spirit equip you all with gifts for the common good.

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