Benedictions: “Peace Making Benediction”
Samuel A. Trumbore
Also appropriate as
Every week we gather in this beautiful space to find peace.
Each week words and music offer and celebrate peace
with the hope of instilling it in us.
Now, take the peace you have found here,
back out into the world with you.
Renewed in our faith and inspired to act,
Let us be the peacemakers the world aches for;
And, by being peacemakers,
let us find the peace we long for.
Go in peace. Make peace. Be at peace.
