Here is the benediction that Jess Schrock-Ringenberg left us with after her sermon on Sunday.  We are greatful for her message, and as her work as Missional Consultant with the Ohio Conference of Mennonite Church USA.

You can listen to her sermon here.


Now may the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ,

and the love of God the Father be with you;

and may the Holy Spirit come upon you and disturb you,

   and trouble you,

   and set before you an impossible task,

   and dare you to do it;

until in your desperation

you fall on your knees

and remain there until God fills you with his power

which alone will enable you to do it;

and then... but only then,

may the Lord grant you his peace.
