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. In the third episode, we tackle the collect for the third Sunday of Easter, and we learn about the mysterious office of the Custodian of the Standard Book of Common Prayer.
The Collect Call is a pilot project offered by the Acts 8 Moment through Easter Season. Will it last past Easter or burn in the tongues of flame on Pentecost? You tell us! If you like this show, please share it, comment here or on Facebook, and leave us a review on iTunes.
This Week’s Prayer
O God, whose blessed Son made himself known to his disciples in the breaking of bread: Open the eyes of our faith, that we may behold him in all his redeeming work; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
