Questioning

April 11, 2017
The important thing
is not to stop questioning.
— Albert Einstein
Given that quote, an obvious next haha line is something like, “Keep questioning about what?”
Some of the best teachers you and I’ve had, the wisest counselors, and the most incisive therapist-types would nod at that but not find it funny.
I’m thinking of one in particular who would probably lean forward, nod at me, pause, and ask, “Yes, questioning about what, exactly?”
There’s a hymn by our old friend Charles Wesley that ends with the line Lost in wonder, love and praise.
Maybe we don’t get to the depths of love and praise because our ability to wonder has lost its edge.
Questions, answers, questions in search of answers and answers in search of questions. And then there’s the profound wonder that’s on the other side of our wonderings and our wanderings.
The important thing is not to stop questioning. Even during these days we call Holy Week.
Perhaps, especially, this week.
Holy Week.
