Here’s a benediction for October 16, 2011 (Proper 24A) written by Rev. Elsa Peters and posted on the United Church of Christ website.
(inspired by I Thessalonians 1:1-10, Exodus 33:12-23)
Growing God, we have known your presence.
We have lived in your love.
Show us your glory.
Reveal your glory in us.
We will carry your glory from here.
We will show it to all your children. Amen.
