In our lucky thirteenth episode of the Collect Call, Brendan apologizes (again) for misstating the date of the Gelasian sacramentary, and he and Holli ponder the Summary of the Law and the golden age of the laser disc.
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.

We have two shoutouts this week – both to Revs. David S. Thank you to the Rev. David Sibley for messing around in the guts of our website so we can upload large files and drastically improve our sound quality. And thanks to the Rev. David Simmons for designing our spiffy new logo.
This Week’s Prayer
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.
