Benediction: Proper 7 C

Here’s a closing commission and benediction inspired by the suggested scripture readings for Proper 7 C.  It was written by Nathan Nettleton.

Commission & Benediction

Go now, proclaiming to all how much Jesus has done for you.
Be as one with each other in Christ.
Wait for the Lord, and be ready to hear God’s voice,
even in the sounds of sheer silence.

And may God be your fortress;
May Christ Jesus release you from all that torments you;
And may the Holy Spirit give you light and truth
to sustain you day and night.

We go in peace to love and serve the Lord,
In the name of Christ. Amen.
