Benediction: Proper 26A

Here’s a Commission & Benediction based on the scripture texts for October 30, 2011 (Proper 26A, Ordinary 31A).  It was written by Nathan Nettleton.

Commission & Benediction
(based on Joshua 3: 7-17, I Thessalonians 2:9-13, Matthew 23: 1-12)

Go now, in the freedom of the gospel of Christ.
Encourage one another to lead lives worthy of God
and walk together in service and humility.
Let your words and your lives be one in Christ.

And may the God of lasting love open the way before you;
May Jesus the Messiah be your one instructor;
And may the Holy Spirit lead you on
    into the promised land of God’s kingdom and glory.

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