Closing Words: “Much of ministry is a benediction”
Much of ministry is a benediction—
A speaking well of each other and the world—
A speaking well of what we value:
A speaking well of our efforts—
A speaking well of our dreams.
This is how we celebrate life:
Through speaking well of it,
Living the benediction,
and becoming as a word
