Pastoral Musings: Confirmation 

June 3, 2013

I am looking forward to another festive Sunday as we prepare for Confirmation and celebrating intentional steps of faith. This year we have eight youth from our eighth grade class who would like to confirm their faith and join the church! I so enjoy being a part of the confirmation class and process, getting to know these amazing young people who open my eyes to new ways of seeing the world and remembering how many things were stirring in me at that age. I have distinct memories of my own confirmation, standing up front with my peers, having waters of baptism dripping from my hair and giggling through my nerves. The journey of faith that begins in baptism and confirmed when one chooses is one that unfolds and deepens through the years. Saying ‘yes’ to their Christian faith now doesn’t mean that it will be the same faith 20 years down the line . . . I would be surprised if that was the case. My prayer for our confirmands is that they would continue to seek God in experience and scripture, recognizing God in new ways as their faith is challenged through what life inevitably brings. And may they always know Plymouth as a touchstone, a home, a safe haven, and a place of accountability and grace. Please join the confirmands, their families and mentors this Sunday for a celebration of faith and beginnings!
