Benediction: We Are One

Here’s a benediction about Christian Unity.  It was written by Paul Randall.

(inspired by John 17:21, 1 Corinthians 1:10-18)

My fellow servants, we are one.
The bread we share makes us one.
The cup we pour makes us one.
Even as our dearest sisters and brothers
     come and go from us, we are one. 
Even as we scatter from this place
     to so many diverse pursuits
     throughout this city, this state, this globe,
     we are one. 
With gratitude we share the Table.
With gratitude we depart. 
With gratitude we release one another,
     trusting in the One
     Who makes us one.
  Go in peace.
