Benediction: Proper 17A

Commission & Benediction
(based on Matthew 16:21-28; Romans 12:9-21)

Go now and follow Jesus in the way of the cross.
Rejoice in hope,
hold fast to what is good,
persevere in prayer.
Do not be overcome by evil,
but overcome evil with good.
As far as is possible, live peaceably with all.

And may God hear your cries and deliver you;
May Christ Jesus repay you with fullness of life;
And may the Holy Spirit be with you always
........nourishing you in love and hope.

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