Benediction for 1/9/11

11 01 2011

[Ecclesia worship services end with a Benediction, either read from Scripture or written by a church member. I was asked to write one for this Sunday. I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out, but a lot of people were moved by it. Be blessed. -Matt]

Blessed are you who share not crumbs but a seat at the table.

Blessed are you who have nothing yet give.

Blessed are you who threw away reputation to sit with the outsider

Blessed are the foolish in generosity.

Blessed are you who saw the image of God in me.

Blessed are you who bind your humanity with mine, and say, “I am because we are.”

Blessed are those show see heaven descend to earth today.
