Benediction: Proper 28C

Here’s a closing commission and benediction inspired by the suggested scripture readings for Proper 28, Year C.  It was written by Nathan Nettleton.

Commission & Benediction: Proper 28C

Go now and tell the world what God does.
Do not chase after self-proclaimed messiahs,
but draw deeply from God’s saving well
and speak the words the Spirit gives you.
Do not be weary in doing what is right.

And may God delight in you and give you strength;
May Christ Jesus lead you in the ways of new life;
And may the Holy Spirit give you the words and wisdom
to withstand all that would tear you down.

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