Benediction for Trinity Sunday

This is adapted from Gerhard Engelsberger's Gebete für den Gottesdienst:

As we go our separate ways,
remember that nothing has yet been done
that needs to be done;
nothing that cries out for change
has yet been changed;
no goal has been accomplished;
no burdens have been lifted—
the problems of the world are still part of the world.

But as we go our separate ways,
remember this as well:
all that needs to be said has been said;
everything old has become new;
all that was barren can now bear fruit;
all that was closed has been opened up;
all that was torn apart has been reconciled;
and all that was too narrow has been broadened.

God has created all.
Christ has redeemed us.
The Holy Spirit is at work. Amen.
