Benediction: Into the Future

Here’s a benediction that would work well on New Year’s Eve, or at a graduation ceremony.  It was written by Cheryl Lawrie.


we leave today
going into a future
as yet unmapped

take faith with you as you go;
into the parts of your life not yet traveled by love
into the parts of the world unexplored by grace
let compassion and hope be the roads that you follow
today and always
