"Always end with the Good News"

So said one of my seminary profs (one I with whom I seldom agreed!) So, enough bloggy stuff for now, let me end with this from the Morning Prayer lessons:

Since we are God's offspring, we ought not to think that the deity is like gold, or silver, or stone, an image formed by the art and imagination of mortals. While God has overlooked the times of human ignorance, now he commands all people everywhere to repent, because he has fixed a day on which he will have the world judged in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed, and of this he has given assurance to all by raising him from the dead.
Acts 17:29-31

It has been my practice (where allowed by the Celebrant) to end the Eucharist with the Great Commission prior to the dismissal. I look at this as a continuation of the procession to the World. So, the last thing the congregation hears before walking out into the world is "And Jesus came to them and said: 'All authority in heaven and earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all I have commanded you. And lo, I am with you always. To the Close of the age." "Go in peace to love and serve the Lord!"
