Benediction for Maundy Thursday

Here’s a benediction for Maundy Thursday from the Starters for Sunday website.  It was written by Rev. Dr. Clare McBeath and Rev. Tim Presswood.

Maundy Thursday Benediction

So may the blessing of the God who calls the people out of Egypt
call us out from our comfort and our safety
to embrace a journey of challenge and risk

May the blessing of the Son who kneels and washes our feet
call us out from our comfort and our safety
to embrace and serve those we meet on the journey

May the blessing of the Spirit who weaves dreams of a new community
call us out from our comfort and our safety
to provide welcome and hospitality to strangers as well as friends.
