In the life of faith, and in the life of an educator, it's not only answers that matter, but questions. The right questions can make all the difference. I think of the rich young man who came to Jesus and asked: "Teacher, what good must I do to gain eternal life?" Or of the lawyer who said to Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?" Or Pilate: "Are you the King of the Jews?" One of my favorite moments occurs after the calming of the storm at sea, when Jesus' apostles ask: "Who then is this, that even wind and sea obey him?"
I'm curious for reader feedback: What questions do you bring to your prayer? How do questions play a role in your relationship with God?
And what, today, do you believe to be the urgent questions in the life of faith?
