We’ve been trying to offer a Monday Meditation, but today, you’re getting a Monday Benediction. The benediction is the part of our service where we are sent out into the world, the time when our worship closes, the moment at which we transfer from contemplation and reflection to action. A friend of mine posts a benediction each night, and tonight, that was what spoke to me. Tonight, I offer you this:
May you look back on this day and feel the love that was offered to you. May you welcome the gentle forgiveness that God offers. May you allow what is unfinished to simply remain unfinished, and may you close your night thinking of someone who needs to hear that they are loved.
