Benediction: Proper 10A

Here are a few possible benedictions for July 10, 2011, the fourth Sunday after Pentecost.  They are based on the suggested scripture readings for that day.


Benediction
(based on Romans 8:10-11)

As you go from here, remember this:
the same Spirit of God who raised Jesus Christ from the dead,
also lives in you,
breathing new life and freedom into your hearts and minds.
So go from here with joy and confidence,
knowing that God Is at work within you.


Benediction 2
(based on Isaiah 55:10-13)

As we go from here,
we go with this promise from God's Word:

You will go out with celebration,
and be brought back in peace.
Even the mountains and the hills
will burst into song before you;
all the trees of the field will clap their hands.
In place of the thorn, beautiful cypress trees will grow;
in place of the nettle, the myrtle will grow.
This will be a testimony to God’s glory,
an enduring reminder of God’s faithfulness.

Go in joy and peace to serve the Lord.
