Commission & Benediction: Keep Alert

Here are sending words for the first Sunday of Advent Year B. They were written by Nathan Nettleton, and appear on his website.

Commission & Benediction

Go now, strengthened by the testimony of Christ.
Keep alert and wait for the revealing of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Continue to do right and remember God in your ways.

And may God enrich you in speech and knowledge of every kind;
May Christ Jesus strengthen you to the end;
And may the Holy Spirit guide you in faithful living until he comes.

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