Prayers Ascending

The Collect for the Day for this coming Sunday, which we prayed together at Eucharist today, seems oh-so-appropriate a prayer to pray as our bishops gather in New Orleans and our church and our communion consider our way forward together:

Grant us, Lord, not to be anxious about earthly things, but to love things heavenly; and even now, while we are placed among things that are passing away, to hold fast to those that shall endure; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

More later. Back to my "day job."
