Title : 3/11
passage : Jeremiah 7: 23-28.
passagePhrase : When you speak all these words to them, they will not listen to you either; when you call to them, they will not answer you. Say to them: “This is the nation that does not listen to the voice of its God, or take correction. Faithfulness has disappeared; the word itself is banished from their speech.”

In the contemporary context, these anguished words from the prophet Jeremiah bring to mind the faithlessness to hard realities so typical of our “post-truth” era. Wishful thinking, egocentrism, sociocentrism, and the bland relativism that often accompanies them, help to create a background murmuring of distortion and distraction, making it sometimes impossible to hear the sounds of the world around us. Whether the reality is global warming and the massive extinctions that attend it, a global pandemic, centuries-old suffering and injustice, or a simple election, the din of our own momentary wishes and wants, hatreds and fears, the constant nattering of our noisy beliefs in our own righteousness and supremacy, too often drown out the voice of That Which Is and Shall Be. As it was in Jeremiah’s time, so it is today. We do not listen to that voice. Nor do we take correction.
