Blessing: Peace Be With You

Here is a benediction/blessing for Pentecost inspired by John 20:21.  It was written by Rachel Hackenberg and posted on the RevGalBlogPals website.

Peace Be With You
(John 20:21)

Peace be with you.

Behind doors closed & locked in fear,
peace dwell with you.

On this path where the footing is tricky,
peace walk with you.

Through the mist with its disorienting shadows,
peace gaze calmly with you.

At the table, whether crowded or quiet,
peace sit with you.

No matter the turbulence or shifting ground,
peace stand with you.

In every breath, in each wound & every exuberance,
peace be alive with you.

Peace be with you.
