A Collect for the Presence of Christ - Bryan Sherwood

A Collect for the Presence of Christ -

"Lord Jesus, stay with us, for evening is at hand and the day is past; be our companion in the way, kindle our hearts, and awaken hope, that we may know you as you are revealed in Scripture and the breaking of bread. Grant this for the sake of your love. Amen."

For some reason tonight, when I asked that we read this aloud collectively, a catch of emotion caught my throat and a tearing up at the "stay with us." Fidelity to place and the theology of body.
