commissioning and benediction – back out into the world

submitted by Gord Waldie, St. Paul’s United Church, Grande Prairie, Alberta

Our time of worship concludes, we go back out into the world.
Here we have met the God who chooses to make us clean.
And, having been healed, what is our response?
We share the love of God with all we meet, for they too have been made clean.
As you go to live and serve, go with the sure knowledge that the God who washes and heals us all will go with you.
Always and all ways.
May God bless and keep you this day and forevermore.
Amen.
