The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious unto you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace.
--Numbers 6:24-26

This blessing is commonly used as a benediction (which literally means 'good words'), the final blessing often spoken over a congregation at the close of worship. For those graduating from Milligan College today, Congratulations! I hope that as faculty we have been a blessing to you, just as your presence in our community has been a blessing to us. And we trust that as you go out into the world, you will be a blessing to others. Blessings to you and your families, and on your future endeavors.
