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.

The Collect Call: For the Good Use of Leisure
Aug 5 17
We belatedly announce our summer break and pray for its good use. Also, major #catdisclaimer.
This week’s text (BCP p. 825):
O God, in the course of this busy life, give us times of refreshment and peace; and grant that we may so use our leisure to rebuild our bodies and renew our minds, that our spirits may be opened to the goodness of your creation; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
