Contemporary Benediction: Follow Me

Here’s a contemporary sending from the NWOA Faith Formation blog of the United Church of Christ.


May you depart knowing the invitation of God, to move
- from comfort to insecurity
- from what we know to what we have yet to discover
- from where we have been to where we have yet to go
- from safety to a place of risk
Go in the example of the saints before you,
the Israelites in the wilderness,
Paul blind in Damascus waiting for Ananias.

Go in the name of Jesus, our Christ,
who said ‘follow me’ without saying where he was going,
just promising transformation and relationship
with the Triune God along the way. Amen.
