This is just an observation on my part, not judging or anything like that. In my experiences, limited to only about 50 years as a child of God, I've noticed a "new(?)" trend of applauding (clapping) rather than (or in place of) a hearty "AMEN!" I've heard in on the radio, seen it on TV programs, and experienced it personally in a local congregational setting. I'm certainly not agin' it, and maybe this is a way our beloved "cisterns'" can express their approval of what's being said "from the stage." Do y'all BB Land peoples have any comments y'all id like two 'spress on this?
