Benediction (1) | Easter Sunday (Year C)

The following benediction is from the United Church of Christ.

Go forth to live boldly,
as if death has no power over you.
Live as if your lives count for something–because they do.
God calls us in abundant love
to serve something greater than our own finite lives,
a greater cause for which we would even lay down our lives, as Jesus did.
For just as death on a tree could not stop the Christ,
so our lives in service to God become larger than ourselves,
part of the ever in-breaking realm of God—
that realm of justice and truth,
of enough for all and not too much for any one.
Go in peace, to love, to serve, and to proclaim:

One: Christ is risen! Alleluia!
Many: Christ is risen indeed! Alleluia!
