Convocation Benediction 2007

This is the benediction I gave today at our 52nd opening convocation, drawn from Ephesians 4:20-21:

As you enter into this new year,
receive these good words from God:
May God grant you his grace to learn Jesus this year,
his great and dying love for you,
his continued intercession for you at the throne of God,
his ongoing work in and through you;
and as you gain this knowledge,
may God grant you to delight
in his love, intercession, and work
for his glory, your joy, and the nations' good.
Go in God's love, Amen.
