Graduation Benediction 2007

This is a little late; I meant to post it earlier. But this was the benediction I gave at Covenant Seminary's baccalaureate service on May 17, 2007; it was drawn from Ephesians 2:11-22:

Class of 2007, friends, families, loved ones: as you go from this place into the world to serve Christ our King, receive this good word from our God--
May our God grant you to have such a sight of Christ--
who is our peace and
who is making peace for
those who are far off and
those who are near---
that you will be compelled to love
the broken and the proud
the weak and the strong
the unlovely and the beautiful
as those who make up God's glorious, Holy Spirit-built temple, the Church,
of which Christ is the Cornerstone.
May God grant you this, now and forever! Go in his peace, Amen.
