Benediction: John 14: 23-29

Here’s a benediction inspired by John 14: 23-29, the gospel text for the 6th Sunday of Easter.

(based on John 14)

Listen to the promise Jesus makes:

I will never abandon you as orphans—I will come to you.
Even though the world will not be able to see me,
I will never vanish from your sight.
And since I live, you will also live.

Go from here in the knowledge
that you do not go alone:
the power and presence of God goes with you.
Praise be to God!
