Sending forth & the Grace
Remember…To plant seeds of peace wherever your journey takes you,
to bless others as you have been blessed, to speak no words that would wound,
to withhold nothing that can be shared, to pray always for peace.
For God is our strength, Jesus our inspiration and the Holy Spirit our guide.
Ring out the thousand wars of old.
Ring in the thousand years of peace.
