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.”
