Commission & Benediction: Matthew 14:22-33

Here are some parting words for worship on August 7, 2011 (Proper 14A), based on Matthew 14:22-33, where Jesus invites Peter to join him walking on water.

Commission & Benediction
(based on Matthew 14:22-33)

God calls us to step out in faith,
to follow where He leads
even if what He calls us to do seems impossible.

So let’s go from here with courage,
trusting in God’s presence and power,
and eager to do God’s will.

And may the blessing of God,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
be among you and within you
wherever you find yourself this week.
