At some point in every Christian’s life, they discover a question.
You know the kind.
Not "How are you?" or "What kind of toothpaste should I buy?"
But, "What really happens when we die?"
Or, "Why does this terrible stuff happen to people who do their best to follow God?"
Or, "How could God forgive me after what I’ve done?"
Or, "How do I know what God wants me to do next?"
You know. That kind of question.
For whatever reason, questions like this often feel like obstacles to our faith. They may feel forbidden, out-of-bounds. In the Bible, we read about characters like Job and Nicodemus asking questions that sound like ours, only to hear what sounds like a very touchy response from God.
But what if faith requires us to ask questions?
What if questions are an essential part of our personal faith?
What if we need questions to survive and grow as a community of faith?
You want to go there, don’t you? You want to believe that dialogue with God, relationship with God, requires questions.
Well, guess what? You’re in good company. Join us this Lent to explore the questions as we grow into a deeper relationship with God.
