The intellectually curious person has a deep and persistent desire to know. She asks and seeks answers to the “why” questions. And she doesn’t stop asking at a surface level, but instead asks probing questions in order to peel back layers of explanation to get at the foundational ideas concerning a particular issue.
At the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer, we encourage intellectual curiosity. We have on-going small groups exploring the nature of God and we often have question and answer sessions at the end of the sermon. Periodically we form study groups to learn more deeply about scripture or tradition.
We do this with an eye towards our commitment to respecting diverse views. Always listening for God’s voice speaking directly to each of us.
