An Olive Branch Report on the Shambhala Listening Post

The impulse to believe the absurd when presented with the unknowable is called religion. Whether this is wise or unwise is the domain of doctrine. Once you understand someone's doctrine, you understand their rationale for believing the absurd. At that point, it may no longer seem absurd. You can get to both sides of this conondrum from here.

INTERCHURCH MINISTRIES OF NEBRASKA

IMN is a statewide ecumenical agency that provides planning and program support to cooperating denominations in Nebraska.

IMN was designed for Christian communions in Nebraska, in order that churches might come together for worship, teaching, service, and common witness to the faith. IMN is both ecumenical and evangelical in its vision. As it calls the churches to work together in service to the world, so it also calls the churches to their common mission of proclaiming the good news of God in Jesus Christ.

IMN began its ministries in 1971 as the realization of the churches’ longing to live out the vision of Christ’s prayer “that they may all be one” (John 17:22). The purpose is to be an instrument of the churches, individually and together, as they carry out their programs of ministry and mission.


IMN is actively engaged in the “Life and Work” dimensions of ecumenism. Witness to our unity in Christ is given through a variety of programs. IMN programs involve many more groups than the ten members. As each program begins, many Nebraska denominational groups are invited to join the design committee – as full participants or in observer status.

Ecumenical Communions joined together to show forth the Unity of Christ’s Body on Earth.

Facilitating the faith community’s response to climate change.

Climate change is an ever-increasing threat in Nebraska and across the globe. As the impacts of an altered climate continually come to be better understood, the need to act becomes more urgent. Today, many Nebraskans remain uninformed about the facts of climate change, and about its implications for Nebraska’s water supply, agricultural production, economy and public health. There is a great need to communicate, educate and inspire Nebraska citizens to take action on climate change mitigation and adaptation.

The faith community is a vibrant sector of life in Nebraska. Within Nebraska, 90% of residents identify as Christian and worship attendance is high. Jewish, Unitarian, Buddhist and Muslim communities are represented in the state as well. The faith leaders who are committed to revitalizing Nebraska Interfaith Power and Light believe that climate change is the most pressing moral issue of our time. We know that the faith community is uniquely well-suited to respond to the challenges of climate change on human civilization, and we know that the faith community is a powerful voice in our state.

All faith traditions remind us that creation is a gift from God, and that we have been entrusted from the beginning with its care and keeping. Interfaith Power and Light is bringing the considerable resources of faith to the table in response to the moral challenge presented by the climate crisis.
