That’s a good question…


by Rachel Held Evans Read Distraction Free

Perhaps the most significant life lesson I’ve learned in my young adulthood is that knowing all the answers isn’t as important as asking good questions. So every now and then I like to use Fridays to 1) link to other bloggers and writers who have asked compelling questions during the week and 2) open the floor for you to share whatever questions you’ve been wrestling with lately.

Some things that got me thinking this week:

Don Miller started quite the conversation by asking,  Does God have a specific plan for your life?

Pete Wilsons asks, Do we really need the church?

Elisabeth Bumiller of The New York Times asks, Is PowerPoint making the military stupid? (Which of course made me wonder if PowerPoint is making all of us stupid.)

Jason Boyett asks archeologist Robert Cargill, Have we discovered Noah’s Ark?

Josh Mueller asks, What are the motives behind my comments online?

Micah asks, What does “literally” mean? And then Dan asks, What is Micah thinking? (A fun exchange between former college roommates.)

ThatGuyKC asks, Are you a slave to cliches?

My friends Sarah CunninghamRenee Johnson, and Kary Oberbrunner (along with Jesse Rice and Shawn Wood) ask, Are you ready to throw mountains? 

So, what questions are you asking this week—on your blog, at your dinner table, in your head, in your heart?
