The Reverend Mona Bagasao
August 8, 2008

This benediction is about Letting Go -
Parents, letting go of your students;
Students, letting go of some of the pieces of your childhood that prevent you from chasing your dreams, from taking responsibility for yourself.

This benediction is about Embracing -
Embracing possibility, embracing high hopes, embracing newness and uniqueness.

This benediction is about Taking Risks -
Considering questions you've never asked before;
Offering yourself in service with which you've never challenged yourself before;
Gaining a new perspective you've never noticed before;
Living a deliberate life you've never dared live before.

So, go from this place Letting Go, Embracing, Taking Risks, and Receiving the great blessings of our God that are present in these things.

Go in peace.
