Sending Forth Davy Davis/Janet
Cassell
Once we searched and groped for God in darkness.
Now we reside with Christ in glorious
light.
Once we worried that God was far from us.
Now we rejoice that God is closer to us
than our very breath.
Once we yearned for God’s love and acceptance.
Now we dwell in communion with God and
with one
another. Thanks be to God. Amen.
Choral Benediction: “Because He Lives, I can
face tomorrow. Because He Lives, all fear is gone.Because I know… he holds the future, and life
is worth the living, just because He lives.”
