Commission & Benediction
(inspired by Matthew 5: 13-16)

May our love be like salt
that makes life tasty and worthwhile.
May our Christian living be a light
to those who live in darkness.
May our Christian communities
be cities of light to be seen from afar
as signs that God lives and works in his people.
And may God bless you all for this mission:
the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Go now, and let the light of Christ shine
on all those who live around you. Thanks be to God!
