The Collect (said by all)

Lord of the overturning,

your passion sweeps away 

the calculating religion,

which keep us safely outside the holy places:

may we find our way through the debris

of all that protected us

to find your dangerous heart

and our world upside down;

through Jesus Christ, our exiled Lord. 

Amen.
