There certainly is a lot of shouting going on in the United States nowadays. Perry Mullins is the rector of Saint Peter's Church in McKinney, Texas.
He wrote a thoughtful article on shouting in the June 26, 2020 issue of "Forward Day by Day." I thought you would enjoy it.
Blessings and love to all, Fr. Jack.
Matthew 20:31. The crowd sternly ordered them to be quiet,
but they shouted even more loudly, "Have mercy on us, Lord, Son of David."
There is a lot of shouting in our world today. Some of it is good, but most isn't. Far too often, we shout at one another on social media or in the news, building soundbites but not community or cooperation. We have forgotten what things we should shout for, and we have begun to shout for anything. The result is noise. The sort of shouting exalted in scripture is the kind that begs for mercy, the kind that that praises God and proclaims justice and love in the face of oppression and hatred. Our shouts won't produce great soundbites, and they won't win arguments, but they will be heard on high. If we remain silent about those things that really ought to matter most, the stones will cry out.
MOVING FORWARD: Ask God to help quiet your anxiety and build you up to shout for the right things in this world.
