Collect

Collect for the Seventh Sunday after Trinity

Lord of all power and might, who art the author and giver of all good things: graft in our hearts the love of thy Name; increase in us true religion, nourish us with all goodness, and of thy great mercy keep us in the same; through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

Reblog: Brent Bailey

My next post is coming fairly slowly. To cover myself, and more importantly because it's fantastic, I'd like to recommend this post from Brent Bailey at Odd Man Out. He is one of the writers on homosexuality that I like best (along with Melinda Selmys, Steve Gershom, Joshua Gonnerman, Eve Tushnet, and a few others), and this post deals with the lived experience of gay Christianity -- something that I see less often than I'd like. It's easy to get caught up in the "issues," which, while they are legitimately important, frequently have very little to do with the daily lives of the spirituality of -- well, anybody really. Please enjoy.
