Commission and Benediction: Proper 17 C

Here’s are sending words inspired by the suggested scripture readings for Proper 17C, the 15th Sunday of Pentecost.  It was written by Nathan Nettleton.

Commission & Benediction: Proper 17 C

Go now and walk in all God’s ways.
Keep your lives free from the love of money
but let love between people continue and be honoured.
Show hospitality to strangers.
Pray for those who suffer torture and imprisonment
and do not neglect to do good.

And may God be your strength;
May Christ Jesus be for you a fountain of living water;
And may the Holy Spirit raise you to life
...with all God’s righteous ones.

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