Don’t ask me why, but I recently watched an episode of the American TV show Desperate Housewives. It turned out to be the perfect episode for someone who loves questions ❤️
In this scene, Lynette humiliates her friend Bree by interrupting the reverend, because she's "got a question about his sermon".
And later in the same episode the reverend surprises Bree by saying that he finds Lynette's questions refreshing, because "like I always say: Church is not a place for answers. It's a place for questions".
Bree doubts that the reverend has ever said that. And to be honest, so do I. But the idea of 'a place for questions' piqued my curiosity.
Because even though I have never witnessed a Q&A session during a sermon, I think it's safe to say that we tend to create 'places for questions'. Think about question games, coaching sessions, interviews, polls and AMA (Ask Me Anything) sessions.
Why do we do that? Why do we need a place for questions? Why don't we allow questions to flow freely anywhere at any time?
I'm starting to think that we need a place for questions, because that way we can keep all other places free of questions.
