Commission & Benediction: Proper 6 C

Here’s a closing commission and benediction inspired by the suggested scripture readings for Proper 6, Year C.  It was written by Nathan Nettleton.

Commission & Benediction

Go now, and live by faith in the Son of God.
Pray for God’s justice,
Never welcome evil,
pour out your love freely.

And may God hear your cries for help;
May Christ Jesus stand with you in the face of hostility;
And may the Holy Spirit fill you with faith and life.

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