In our twenty-first episode, Holli and Brendan break down a prayer that is not playing around on the unity of the church.
The Collect Call is a podcast that unpacks and reflects upon the meaning of the collect of the week â€“ that prayer at the start of the service that changes every week. Turns out thereâ€™s a lot in those little paragraphs! Hosts Brendan Oâ€™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.
