After griping about how almost no one on Survivor ever knows how to build a fire…oh, no! “Salvation! Back up for grabs!” Holli and Brendan challenge themselves to deploy some unfamiliar language in describing their relationship with God.
The Collect Call unpacks and reflects upon the meaning of the collect of the week – that prayer at the start of the service that changes every week. Turns out there’s a lot in those little paragraphs! Hosts Brendan O’Sullivan-Hale and Holli Powell challenge themselves to learn about the history of the prayers, reflect on their spiritual meaning and application to daily life, and, inevitably, reduce them to tweets.
And now–the word cloud! Here’s the one for all the words in the contemporary collects.
And here’s the cloud with the petitions and attributions stripped out.

This Week’s Prayer
Give us grace, O Lord, to answer readily the call of our Savior Jesus Christ and proclaim to all people the Good News of his salvation, that we and the whole world may perceive the glory of his marvelous works; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
