In the joy of the Resurrection Jesus says:

“Go out to the whole world!
Go out to my people
Draw them into God’s life.
In the name of the Father,
the Son the Holy Spirit.
Bring them into the heart of God’s family.
I am with you.
Yes, always, to the end of the world!”
And we say:
“Here I am Lord, is it I, Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night.
I will go, Lord, if you send me,
I will hold your people in my heart.”

(Isaiah 6:8; Hymn Daniel Schulte)
