The Collect Call
About This Show
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 Episcopal church service that changes every week. Hosts Brendan O’Sullivan-Hale and Holli Powell challenge themselves to learn a little about the history of the prayers, reflect on their spiritual meaning and application to daily life, and, inevitably, reduce them to tweets.

We don’t presume to know how you voted, nor do we even care. But we do know that a lot of people are hurting and scared right now, and we all have to live with each other now that the election is over.
We have a homework assignment for you: tell us about ways you are witnessing or spreading love. Use Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, e-mail, whatever works for you, and use the hashtag #collectlove.
And dear listeners, know that even though we’ve been on a break, we’re coming back soon. We love you a lot, but God loves you even more.
This week’s prayer: For Times of Conflice (BCP p. 824)
O God, you have bound us together in a common life. Help us, in the midst of our struggles for justice and truth, to confront one another without hatred or bitterness, and to work together with mutual forbearance and respect; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
