Litany for the journey

Take up your pack…

go forth into the world. 
Know that you are loved.


In the wilderness or the city

in slavery or promised land

our needs are met—in full

more than we could need.


Water gushes from the rock—for you

Manna falls in abundance—for you

The seas part, walls fall down

Milk and honey flow—for you.  
Cloud and fire go with you.


In bondage or freedom

In settlement or wandering—


Go in grace

Go in joy
Go in peace.
