God of our coming in and our going out,
God of our past, our present, and our future,
God who has called us to be the church, who has challenged us to be your hands and feet active in the world,
here today we have worshipped, here today we have met.
Now, after the prayer, the singing, the listening, the sharing;
comes time to head back to our various homes and busy-ness,
those places where we do most of our living and loving.
As we go, fill our hearts, our minds, our souls with hope,
so that we would be bringer of hope to the world around us.
May our lives exude the love which flows first from You.
We pray in the name of Christ, whose name we bear.
