Benediction: The Upside-Down Kingdom

Here is a commission and benediction based on two of the scripture readings for September 18, 2011 (Proper 20A).

Commission & Benediction
(based on Exodus 16:2-15, Matthew 20:1-16)

Go out from here
as workers in God’s upside-down kingdom,
where the last are first and the first are last,
where needs are met in miraculous ways,
and there is grace enough for all!

And may the blessing of God,
the love of Jesus Christ,
and the presence of the Holy Spirit
surround you and sustain you in the coming days. 
Amen.
