A Collect for Returning
Holy Lord, who stands apart from his creation in majesty, love, and power, show us where we have lost our flavor and our ability to preserve your creation and how we have missed the call to be like you in our lives with one another and the world, that we would be able to recognize our need for your forgiveness and love and be led back into your will and desire, joining into the joy of our master, through Jesus Christ, our savior, who lives with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
"You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, but is thrown out and trampled under foot." - Matthew 5:13
