Benediction: Living Water


Here’s a closing commission and benediction with a water theme.  It comes from the World Communion of Reformed Church website.

Commission & Benediction

Go now from this service of worship
to the service of God’s people near and far,
refreshed by the living water that Jesus offers to you.
Listen for the parched voices of the least of these;
search out the dry places and the arid souls,
and become for them a spring of living water.
And as you go,
may the blessings of the God of life,
the Christ of love,
and the Spirit of grace
be upon you this day and forevermore. Amen
