Todd Jenkins, poet and photographer, asks questions and invites us to do so.

161 ordinary ministry

You and I will learn
very little about one another
or anything else, for that matter,

if all we do is ask questions for which
we have already determined
right and wrong answers.

The best we can do
with this kind of interchange
is to determine how much
we agree and disagree;
the worst is to pass judgment.

If, however, we inquire
in ways that require stories,
and not the kind that come
from books, but from
our own life experiences,

then we open the door
to deepen our relationship;
and that’s why we’re breathing.
