Commission & Benediction: July 31, 2011

Go now into the world, strengthened by the gifts
with which Christ has fed you.
Be generous to others, for Christ has given extravagantly.
Live by God’s word, avoiding lies and violence.
Walk in God’s paths and never stray.

And may God’s wonderful love be with you everywhere;
May Christ Jesus feed you with his body and word;
And may the Holy Spirit confirm the truth in you
........and fill you with God’s presence always.

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