The Collect Call: Jesus Said, “Love the Trolls”

collectcallbk

What Bible verse was it where Jesus said to “Love the trolls?” Plus, reflections on the collect for proper 12, allegedly one of the most frequently memorized prayers (call us skeptical). Also: buy a lying down desk for Holli!

This week’s collect:

O God, the protector of all who trust in you, without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy: Increase and multiply upon us your mercy; that, with you as our ruler and guide, we may so pass through things temporal, that we lose not the things eternal; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

(Book of Common Prayer, page 231)

This coming Sunday is July 3…but avoid the temptation to use the Independence Day propers!

This week’s collect:

O God, you have taught us to keep all your commandments by loving you and our neighbor: Grant us the grace of your Holy Spirit, that we may be devoted to you with our whole heart, and united to one another with pure affection; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

The Collect Call: For the Fourth Sunday of Easter (Remastered)

collectcallbk

A digitally remastered picture disk edition of our fourth show! We didn’t know what we were doing when we started, so the audio was terrible…now, with our acquired skills, experience the early episodes of The Collect Call like never before.

This Week’s Prayer

O God, whose Son Jesus is the good shepherd of your people; Grant that when we hear his voice we may know him who calls us each by name, and follow where he leads; who, with you and the Holy Spirit, lives and reigns, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

(page 225 of the Book of Common Prayer, or bcponline.org)

Debriefing the Easter Invitation Video Project

EasterInvitation

Earlier today, Nurya Love Parish and Frank Logue tried out a new technology in public, and Episcopalians around the country joined in. Blab.im is still in beta, but early indications are that this live videostream technology is both simple and enjoyable. There are many ways the church can make use of this new social platform.

Today, we used it to discuss the Acts 8 Movement’s video evangelism project. The conversation included call-in guests who shared their experience with the video and gave ideas for future projects.

Watch the video:

Or, if you prefer just the audio, grab it here (and ignore that huge face which I can’t figure out how to change!):


How could you imagine using Blab in ministry?

The Collect Call: Crowdsourced Christmas Carol

It started out as a dare, then turned into a thing. In an interview we did with Aaron Devries on our 100th episode, Aaron invited us to record a song for the 2015 Badgerland Christmas album. We put the idea out to our listeners, and…we made a thing! Introducing Personent Hodie, by The Collect Call Podcast Internet Choir.

Thanks to Marlayna Maynard, Kyle Oliver, Derek Olsen, Brendan O’Sullivan-Hale, Holli Powell, Frank Smith, and Sam Vaught for making this happen. Listen in your podcast feed, or click the link below to hear it on Soundcloud.

The Collect Call: For St. James the Just & Social Media Sunday

St. James was known for reconciliation. There are lots of ways to do that, but one way is not to feed to social media trolls. We figure out which St. James it is we’re talking about, then talk to Carolyn Clement about Social Media Sunday.

This podcast might have jumped the shark some time ago, but this time even we know it. This episode for St. Michael & All Angels is an epic fail or an epic…something. We’ll let you decide.
