Just as Elijah passed the mantle to Elisha, just as Christ sent the disciples into the world to proclaim the Good News with the help of the Holy Spirit, just as our ancestors shared the faith with us so that we could be gathered here today, may we always be intentional about passing on the mantle of faith, trusting that the Spirit will guide us, all to the Glory of God.

1 Kings 19:15-16, 19-21 and Luke 9:51-62
