Inspired by Valentine’s Day card’s featuring WWE wrestlers, Brendan and Holli start off going on the attack on this prayer’s treatment of sin, then decide it’s pretty good after all. Featuring our first ever listener feedback segment!
The Collect Call 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.

This Weekâ€™s Prayer
Set us free, O God, from the bondage of our sins, and give us the liberty of that abundant life which you have made known to us in your Son our Savior Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
