This responsive reading is appropriate for use at the end of a commissioning
service for Sunday School workers for the new year. We have used it at the
end of an evening worship service with testimonies from Sunday School pupils and
parents, a sermon of challenge and charge to the workers and to to congregation,
and before a season of prayer in dedication of the new workers.
