Everyone has questions about the things they see happening everyday . The problem with ‘grown ups’ is that we stop asking, and sometimes we even stop wondering, we just accept that things are that way without wondering why.
I, personally, LOVE questions! Especially ones that have many different possible answers! And that’s why I love children. Children still wonder, children still ask, they always want to know why! And that’s amazing!
And questions are so important. When we take everything we hear or see as ‘fact’ then we can go no further than that. But when we ask questions and search for answers, that’s when we can go further and discover more.
So this week we have started an after school club for children to ask all the questions they have! And for us to try our best to find answers for them!
Most of the questions asked are about religion, children exploring their faith, seeing if what their parents believe is or can be true for them.
It is amazing to be able to facilitate a time for children to just explore life and be inquisitive! I think my bible is going to become even more well ‘thumbed’ and google is going to become my best friend in this quest to answer some very mind blowing, interesting and funny questions without just saying “because that’s the way it is!” but I know we will have a lot of fun doing it!
