Benediction: Epiphany 4B

Here’s a commission & benediction based on the scripture readings for the fourth Sunday after Epiphany (January 29, 2012). It was written by Nathan Nettleton.

Benediction for Epiphany 4 B

Go now, and heed God’s message.
Never forget God’s wonderful mercy and kindness.
Welcome the freedom that is won in truth,
but never use your freedom to undermine others.
See that your words and actions are worthy of praise.

And may God uphold you in a lasting covenant.
May Christ Jesus free you from all that would harm you.
And may the Holy Spirit nourish you in wisdom and faithfulness.

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