Peace Blessing

I heard the most beautiful blessing at church this Sunday. I found it so very inspiring. Bishop Jane Dixon used it for the Liturgy after 911 at the Washington National Cathedral....


Go forth into the world in peace,
Be strong and of good courage,
Hold fast to that which is good,
Render no one evil for evil,
Support the weak, comfort the afflicted,
Honor all people, Befriend the poor
Love and serve the Lord with singleness of heart,
Rejoicing in the power of the Holy Spirit;
And may that Spirit so fill you that you
Go forth from this place seeing the face
Of Christ in each person you encounter. Amen!
