31 Days of Questions


There’s this THING in the blogging world called “The 31 Day Challenge”.  Hundreds of bloggers write on a topic of their choice every day for the whole month of October. It’s a real challenge for somebody like me, who squeezes out a couple of posts a week — sometimes. What the heck? I’ll give it a go and see if I survive!

My topic is “31 Days of Questions” — specifically, questions Jesus asked people in the gospels. When Jesus asked questions, He wasn’t looking for answers — He has all the answers. His questions were intended to make people think. Please note that I’m not offering any answers, but probably raising more questions and hopefully gaining some insight along the way.  I’d love to hear what you think!
