Here’s a closing commission and benediction inspired by Luke 12: 32-40. It was written by Bruce Prewer.
The Word of Mission and Blessing
(inspired by Luke 12: 32-40)
Be light-footed as you leave this house of prayer.
For you don’t go as fearful servants of a stern Master
but like favourites whom the King has humbly served.
We are no longer called servants, but friends.
The blessing of courage, compassion and common sense,
take you through this week without looking over your shoulder.
In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
