answers and questions

there is a group of high school guys who gathered in my apartment tonight. sometimes, groups like this would be called “small groups” or “bible studies.” however, this group of guys picked the name “brotherhood

tonight, we talked about things serious and not-so-serious. we talked about women preachers. we talked about homosexuality, how to read the bible. we also talked about lust, sex, the things in life that we chase after, and funny quotes from “Family Guy.” Also, we made a list of “rules for making rules” and I used my chalkboard wall.

oh yeah. we ate pizza.

when you have an agenda, you know what you’re going to get, you predict it. you force it to happen.

when you don’t have an agenda, but you’ve got steller people, you never know what you’ll get, but you know it’ll suprise you, stretch you, and you’ve gotta be on your game.

all that to say

it’d be so much easier for me to have “great answers” prepared for students. it is much more difficult to have “great questions.” you can’t fake great questions.

questions or answers: which one did Jesus have more of? questions

questions or answers: which one do our churches have more of? answers
