Ascension Benediction

Go forth in strength,
and may the power from on high—
the power that brought Jesus back from the dead
and drew him into heaven—
be with you in all the challenges in the week to come.

Go forth in peace,
and may the peace that passes understanding
bring you through all the troubles of the world.

Go forth in love,
and when in love you reach out to others,
may you feel in your hand the makings of a star of heaven.

Go now, for you are sent forth
in the Name of God
✚ Creator, Christ, and Holy Spirit. Amen.
