In the book published by CALC called Hunger for Justice, Jack Nelson describes walking through the streets of Calcutta where “the poverty so enraged me that I wanted to scream at God. Then I came to a painful realization. In the suffering of the poor, God was screaming at me, in fact all of us and our institutions and the social systems that cause and perpetuate hunger, poverty and inequality.” “God’s screams are heard by many people in the world. Unfortunately, in too many places, those who try to do something about them are deprived of their liberty and their lives. God screams at us through the cries of the hungry and the oppressed. Let us begin to listen and respond to Him. Conversion begins with our listening and responding to the cries of hunger, and God’s screams!”
