In the love of God, go forth to care for all that God has made,
and to be the Image of God
in a world that longs for your creative power.
In the grace of God, go forth to be the body of Christ in the world,
loving as Christ loved, and offering words of life in the midst of death.
In communion with God,
go forth in the knowledge that your every breath is a gift of God,
and that God fills you, surrounds you, and inspires you.
Go forth in the Name of God—Creator, Christ, and Holy Spirit. Amen.
