Sending Words: A Well of Hope

Here is a closing commission which has a water theme.  It comes from the Global Ministries website.  (I’d probably follow it with a word of benediction/blessing so that the people go out not only with a challenge, but with the promise of God’s presence.)

Closing Commission

With the good news of God still moistening our mouths,
let us go seek our salvation with the least of these.
May we be a well of hope to our thirsting neighbors;
an oasis of opportunity to all we encounter.
