Q & R: Benediction

Here's the Q:

I attended the wonderful service you lead today at the Broad Street Presbyterian Church in Columbus, OH. I was deeply moved by the benediction you offered at the end and have been thinking about it all day. I was wondering if this is something you have written out and if so, would you mind sharing it with me. I would love to have it printed to read through it often and remind myself of the importance of being Christ's hands, feet, and mouth to the world around me. The benediction began something like "Christ has no hands but ours..."

Thank you for reminding me of the importance of this Christian life

Here's the R: I'm glad you found those words - drawn from Teresa of Avila - inspiring, as have I. You'll find the words here:
