Nebraska IPL's Anne McCollister on 'Anyway Faith'

Jul 6, 2009 | What's New

An excellent article by Anne McCollister of Nebraska Interfaith Power & Light appeared in the Omaha World-Herald last Friday. She urges readers to consider Tuvalu, a tiny island in the Pacific with its own distinct culture, from which an entire population will be displaced within a decade.

In his Sunday sermon on June 28, the Rev. David Lux of St. Paul’s United Methodist Church in Lincoln reflected on [Martina] McBride’s song to ponder ” ‘anyway’ faith” – actions that arise from ‘nudges from God,’ inner calls to take action with uncertain outcomes, risk and our comfort zones behind.”

Consider some additional lyrics of “Anyway” by McBride:

God is great. But sometimes life ain’t good

And when I pray

It doesn’t always turn out like I think it should

But I do it anyway,

I do it anyway.

So, we should respond to climate change with ” ‘anyway’ faith.”

Read the rest of “Midlands Voices: Heed ‘nudges from God’ and tackle global warming” to find out how to have ‘anyway faith’ and what it has to do with the climate legislation currently being considered in Washington.
