A Collect to Hold Loosely Even the Good

God of all things, who stands outside of time itself, keep us from believing that our works are too holy to be brought to an end, that we would not cling to things temporal, good though they may be, but would trust in your work and your timing to bring about what you desire, through Jesus Christ our Lord who reigns forever with you and the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘As he came out of the temple, one of his disciples said to him, “Look, Teacher, what large stones and what large buildings!” Then Jesus asked him, “Do you see these great buildings? Not one stone will be left here upon another; all will be thrown down.”‘ – Mark 13:1-2
