Note to My Readers: Due to the busyness of my summer schedule, in which I'm serving as a camp pastor on top of my normal duties, I'll be putting my ongoing Thursday and Friday series on hold until mid-August. All other days will continue to feature new content as usual, and the Thursday and Friday slots will offer devotional and theological reflections (heretofore unpublished) from my seminary years.

Benediction


Here's a quick little poem-prayer I wrote back when I was in college:



Benediction

May the peace of Christ be with you,
      In your comings and in your goings.
May the True Spirit direct the journeying of your heart,
      And may His loving care enfold you.
May the Living God be your shield on the day of battle,
      And may He defend you with His strong right arm.
Now and always, wherever you go.
Now, and always, wherever He leads you.
                                    Amen.
