Ok, ok, even though this episode features something called “Man Town” we swear this podcast is not NSFW, though Holli does drop a little heresy. For real, though, we ponder the possibility of daily encounter with God, and what it means to prepare a home for God in our hearts.
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 212 of the Book of Common Prayer, or bcponline.org):
Purify our conscience, Almighty God, by your daily visitation, that your Son Jesus Christ, at his coming, may find in us a mansion prepared for himself; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
