In "Riddle and Mystery," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

  • Optional: Newsprint, markers and tape

Preparation for Activity

  • Optional: Write the challenge question on newsprint, and post.

Description of Activity

Challenge questions guide a deeper inquiry for especially thoughtful individuals and groups. For this session, ask:

Is there value in asking big questions if we already know we might not ever find the answer?

Extend discussion with these additional questions:

  • Would you rather have someone tell you an answer or work it out yourself?
  • How are the acts of questioning and looking for an answer holy work/religious work?
  • Is there value in asking big questions if we think we already know the answer?
