Here are words of commission and benediction based on the suggested scripture readings for October 23, 2011 (Proper 25A, Ordinary 30A). They were written by Bruce Prewer.
We have been given this new week
in which to honour the God who is easy to love
by loving the neighbours who are sometimes difficult to love.
Not in our own strength are we so commanded
but in the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit
and in the love of the Lord Jesus
through whom all things are possible.
Go on your way rejoicing,
and the blessing of the Living God will always be yours.
Thanks be to God,
