Blessing & Benediction
one: The Spirit of Christ rises to meet the needs of a world in pain –
ALL: a world threatened by violence and exploitation,
one: by a refusal to change,
ALL: by condemnation and greed.
one: The groans of the earth,
ALL: the precious lives of all people,
one: the possibilities of genuine cooperation and collaboration –
ALL: they depend on the manifestation of a radical love:
one: Bold. Bodily. Baptismal.
ALL: May it become so among us.
