Here’s a commission & benediction for Thanksgiving based on Philippians 4:4-9. It was written by Kevin Little.
Sending Forth and Blessing
(based on Philippians 4: 4-9)
One: Go into the world showing a gentle attitude toward everyone.
Be joyful and thankful!
Fill your mind with those things that are good and deserve praise:
things true, noble, right, pure, lovely, and honourable.
Put into practice
what you have heard here.
And may the God who gives peace be with each of you.
All: We go in the peace of Christ
to love and serve all creation.
—from Thanksgiving Sunday: A Joyful Service of Hymn and Witness, by Kevin Little.
