Encouraging questions in church

Dr. Erica Carlson, physics professor from Purdue University, challenged Seminary students and pastors alike to welcome and respect all questions of theology and faith from their congregations, especially those from college students, during a special campus lecture “Can I Ask That in Church?” April 23 in the Presidents Room. By doing so, Carlson said, it gives nonbelievers a chance to explore commonly asked questions or concerns, and maybe even to come to faith. She told the group, “Sometimes when people are bubbling up, it’s because the Spirit is working.”
