Responsive Benediction: God the Potter

Here’s a responsive benediction / closing prayer inspired by Isaiah 64:8 and Jeremiah 18:1-11, where God is portrayed as a Potter.

Benediction
(inspired by Isaiah 64:8, Jeremiah 18:1-11)

We came to this sacred space
to celebrate and affirm that the Lord is like a potter,
making and reshaping us into God’s image
to be and share the Good News.

Lord, send us out into your world
as your change agents
to help mold and remake the human condition,
with your grace and your help.
Let it be so in this age and forever more. Amen!
