Going forth in confidence

Journeying with the grace and guidance of God calms us.


As we leave this place,

we leave knowing that we are God’s own children.

All that we have and all that we are is a sacred trust from God.

From this moment on, let us live with gratitude for who we are and commit ourselves to honor each person as a beloved child of God.

May the blessing of the God of ALL:

the One who creates,

the One who redeems,

and the One who sustains,

go with us and guide us every step of the way.
