Benediction: Epiphany

Here’s a closing commission and benediction for Epiphany from Nathan Nettleton’s Laughingbird website.

Commission & Benediction: Epiphany 1A
(inspired by Isaiah 42:6, Matthew 3:13-17, Acts 10:34-43)

Go now as a light to the nations.
Honour the Lord;
preach what you know of the risen Christ,
and fulfil all righteousness.

And may God strengthen you and bless you with peace;
May Christ Jesus bring forth justice for you and among you;
And may the Holy Spirit alight on you
and affirm you as God’s beloved ones.

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