    Love it — my favorite Collect of the Church Year. Thank you for “calling it out,” for the Greater Church. May we follow the verbs of this Collect in our reading — lectio and meditatio of scripture…

    My favorite collect by far…and the title of the first EC book I ever read comes from it…

    Thank you for this post. You write in a clear, understandable way that is truly a blessing.

    Agreed. I am saddened by the drift away from the expression of the truths that have nourished us. Generation after generation. And the prayers that have fed us. Without any need of revision.

  5. I love this Collect! As a bit of a nerd, it speaks to my need to know–and share–God’s Word. And it causes me to ponder what is confusing, concerning and underappreciated and seek to understand its meaning and application in our common life.

    Thanks Diana. I hear Doug’s voice as I read this collect. I cad shall work on eating and injesting more of Gods words instead of having to eat my own .
