Benediction: To do the work of God

Here’s a closing commission inspired by Amos 5.  It was written by Phyllis Tenney.

(based on Amos 5)

Now, go forth from this place with renewed inspiration to do the work of God.
Seek good, not evil, love goodness, and establish justice.
This the greatest offering we can make;
letting justice roll down like waters,
and righteousness like an ever flowing stream.
Go in peace, with love for our neighbors.
