The Great Questions

Five Questions, Five Years

Gathering Host: Karen Cotton

Music: Jonas Dobson

Meditation: Charlotte Rozich, I am C3

Moment of Silence

Music: Jonas Dobson

Readings / Teaching: Kent Dobson

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.

— Albert Einstein

The man who asks a question is a fool for a minute, the man who does not ask is a fool for life.

— Confucius

You force people to stop asking questions, and before you know it they have auctioned off the question mark, or sold it for scrap. No boldness. No good ideas for fixing what’s broken in the land. Because if you happen to mention it’s broken, you are automatically disqualified.

— Barbara Kingsolver

Now I’ve heard there was a secret chord

That David played, and it pleased the Lord

But you don’t really care for music, do you?

It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth

The minor fall, the major lift

The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof

You saw her bathing on the roof

Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya

She tied you to her kitchen chair

She broke your throne, and she cut your hair

And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

There was a time you let me know

What’s really going on below

But now you never show it to me, do you?

And I remember when I moved in you

And the holy dove was moving too

And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

— Leonard Cohen
