The Rev. Churchill Gibson, camp chaplain from 1964-1983, wrote the Shouting Prayer. It's one of the most treasured prayers said - er, shouted - at Shrine Mont. Churchill used to say that the prayer summed up everything we need to know about God's love.
Camps shout the prayer as loud as they can so the whole world might hear the message. The prayer can be heard all over Shrine Mont - in the Shrine, North Mountain, and everywhere in between and further flung.
God loves the world!
God loves us!
God loves you!
I love you!
God loves me!
I love me!
Thanks be to God!
