Easter Commission & Benediction

Here’s a commission & benediction for Easter from Nathan Nettleton’s Laughingbird website.

Commission & Benediction for Easter

Go now as God’s chosen witnesses
to testify that Christ has been raised
and that we are raised with him.
Do not look for him among the dead,
but be glad and rejoice in his salvation.

And may God raise you from all that would entomb you;
May Christ Jesus call you by name and go ahead of you;
And may the Holy Spirit empower you for all that is good.

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