Benediction: Genesis 28

Here is a benediction based on Genesis 28:10-19, one of the suggested lectionary passages for July 17, 2011 (Proper 11A). 

Benediction
(based on Genesis 28:13-15)

As we go from here, hear again the promises of God,
made long ago to our ancestor Jacob,
and still true for us today:

I am the Lord your God,
the God of Abraham and Isaac.
Know that I am with you,
and will keep you wherever you go.
I will not leave you
until I have done everything that I have promised.

Let’s go from here
in the assurance that our faithful God goes with us.
