Benediction: Ephesians 5: 15-20

Here’s a closing commission and benediction based on Ephesians 5:15-20, the suggested epistle reading for Proper 15 B (Ordinary 20 B), the twelfth Sunday after Pentecost.  It was written by Bruce Prewer.

Commission & Benediction
(inspired by Ephesians 5:15-20)

These are complex times.
Let us look carefully how you walk,
not blundering along like fools,
but as those who are wise with the wisdom of Christ.
Wherever we go and whatever happens to us,
we will give thanks to God,
in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Grace mercy and peace,
from God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit,
will be with you today
and always.
