Benediction: Epiphany 3 B

Here’s a closing benediction based on the suggested scripture readings for the third Sunday after Epiphany (Year A and Year B). It was written by Nathan Nettleton.

Commission & Benediction

Go now, follow where Christ calls you
and proclaim the message God gives you.
Wait in hope for God.
Avoid become bound up in the business of the world,
but live in readiness for the inbreaking of the Kingdom.

And may God be your haven and your glory;
May Christ Jesus give you courage for his mission;
And may the Spirit embrace your soul in God’s silence.

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