The Collect Call: For Proper 7

In our eleventh episode of the Collect Call, Holli, Brendan, and extra-special guest Brendan’s Dad get World Cup Fever (or don’t), and explain what this week’s collect has to do with online dating and Lord Voldemort.

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

O Lord, make us have perpetual love and reverence for your holy Name, for you never fail to help and govern those whom you have set upon the sure foundation of your loving-kindness;through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
