The Collect Call: For Proper 14

In our nineteenth episode, the co-hosts of The Collect Call take no blame for the fact that our special guest momentarily forgot her state of residence. After that lapse, all try to reconcile how to live according to God’s will while simultaneously reflecting free will and resisting the Borg.

The Collect Call is a podcast that 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.

This Week’s Prayer

(page 232 of the Book of Common Prayer, or bcponline.org):

Grant to us, Lord, we pray, the spirit to think and do always those things that are right, that we, who cannot exist without you, may by you be enabled to live according to your will; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
