(inspired by Luke 10: 1-11)
Go forth from this place refreshed and empowered
to do the ministry to which God calls you:
Travel lightly, for you carry within you all that you need.
Notice God’s presence in simple, everyday experiences.
Whenever opportunity arises, labor for the good of all.
And the blessing and joy of God, our Creator, Healer, and Life-Giver
go with you today and always. Amen.
