May your love overflow more and more
with knowledge and the Spirit’s full insight
to help you determine what is best,
so that you may produce the harvest of righteousness
that comes through Jesus Christf
or the glory and praise of God.

Charge:

As you return
to God’s work through you,
remember
that the seed planted in you,
the hope of future harvest,
requires both darkness and light to grow
fallow, rested fields and tilled earth
Root yourself
in the Source of living water
and grow tall by growing deep
Go in peace to love
and serve the Lord
