- Collect for EYE 2011 Composed by members of the Worship Team
In discerning a collect for EYE, the worship team drew upon the liturgical resources of the Church including The Book of Common Prayer and A New Zealand Prayer Book to develop a familiar foundation that is universal to many. Using this foundation, the collect was created by incorporating not only the themes and goals of EYE, but the themes and goals of the Episcopal Church as well. The daily themes for EYE, Build, Share, and Fulfill, are referenced, and Matthew’s Gospel, the scripture for EYE 2011, and the Five Marks of Mission were reflected upon before proceeding in the creation of this powerful prayer.
The EYE Mission Planning Team invites you to meditate and pray over this new collect. Use this prayer as a method to offer prayers for EYE planners, registrants, bishops, and all involved in this sacred gathering of our church’s youth.
In Christ's Name,
