Two years ago I started mentoring the 7th grade Confirmation kids. On May 19th, I watched them stand in from of the congregation and affirm their baptism to accept ownership of their faith journey.
Little Matt (whom I taught to spell his name while riding home from daycare) is such a grown up now! He stood at the pulpit and shared what he believes and why he wanted to be Confirmed. What a blessing to be a part of his life.
Blessings for the Confirmands.
