The Collect Call: For Proper 19

Brendan stumbles into possible accidental heresy when contemplating the relationship between heart, mind, and strength. Holli, wisely, stands back. This week’s featured collection: Tamagotchi!!!

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 233 of the Book of Common Prayer, or bcponline.org):

O God, because without you we are not able to please you, mercifully grant that your Holy Spirit may in all things direct and rule our hearts; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
