Ours has been called the “age of outrage.” Perhaps it began with news anchor Howard Beale encouraging a national TV audience to throw open their windows, in the 1976 movie "Network," and scream into the crowded streets, “I’m mad as h--- and I’m not going to take it anymore!”

Whatever Beale was mad about seemed to simmer for decades until the 2016 election. Name calling, finger pointing, screaming and yelling soared to new heights and hasn’t seemed to diminish since.

Next to Matthew 25:31-46, my favorite Jesus quote is "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
