Here is a closing benediction for a New Year’s service. It was written by Rev. Richard J. Fairchild, and posted on the Kirshalom website.
Benediction for the New Year
Go in peace,
love and care for one another in the name of Christ,
and may the blessing of God
who established heaven and earth
fill your hearts and pour forth from you upon all people,
may the blessing of the Lord
who is born anew each Christmas time
call you towards a new tomorrow;
and may the blessing of the Spirit
who refreshes and renews all creation
guide and lead you as you enter the new year. Amen.
