The Clamoring

The Clamoring

written by Murray Dunlap


     At a pause from daily life

          When all grows quiet and still

When you have brought yourself to a peaceful pause in the seeming doldrums of this life

          And beginning to see things as they truly are

There comes a clamoring

          A piercing noise in your life

          At times, it is for an obvious reason

          At times, it is not

     But if you find yourself searching for answers

Turn and face the clamor

     Maybe then, you will tell yourself it makes sense

          It may not

          Believe in the clamoring

     Your logic may not digest it, at all

     At the usual sounds, things make good sense

But the clamor could be the son of God

          Carefully listen

          Begin to dream

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
