Blog Posts about the Collects

Here at Anglican Pastor, we’ve got an ongoing series of reflections on the weekly Collects of the Christian Year. It’s called “Collect Reflections,” and you can read those posts here.

If you’d like to dive even deeper into the rich content and history of the Anglican Collects, then I suggest you start with my introductory post, “Announcing Collect Reflections: Reflecting on the Collects of the Christian Year,” as well as Greg Goebel’s post, “What is a Collect?”

In addition to the books above, Dr. Cummings recommended the following two resources, which can be found online:

Thanks again to Dr. Cummings for sending this list of resources along and giving me permission to share it.
