The Collect Call

By The Acts 8 Movement

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.

Customer Reviews

Reliably insightful and funny

If you believe the words of our public prayers matter, and might be interesting to think more about, this show is for you. If you’d also like to laugh a bit in the process, and get to know two like-minded friends who don’t take themselves too seriously, then you’ll really love it.

Enlightening and entertaining!

Brendan and Holli have such a great chemistry! I really appreciate the care they give to each collect while still introducing a bit of levity into the conversation. Most importantly, I always end the conversation feeling little bit closer to God and the church I love so much! This has definitely become a weekly favorite for me!

Thoughtsful, Prayerful, Hilarious

It pains me its taken me this long to write a review and that there are not more glowing reviews of this podcast gem. The Collect Call, which is an offering of the Acts 8 Movement, is insightful, funny, thoughtful, inspiring, and prayerful. It's certainly niche, as they look in-depth at Christian discipleship through the lens of the collects of the Book of Common Prayer, that is, the American 1979 Episcopal prayer book. If you love liturgy, worship, prayer, theology, or talking about Christian life and discipleship, this show is for you. I look forward to many more years of a deep look at the prayer book from these two lay theologians.
