Gracious and Loving God, with write night behind us, faith statements becoming clear and one Sunday left of class, we feel the anticipation of something ending and a new journey beginning. Through your grace we have discussed ideas, discerned the shape of our faith today. We have asked questions of one another and of You, and we have laughed and bonded as a group. We give thanks for Plymouth Church and the container she provides for young people growing in faith. As we walk toward our June 1 Confirmation, we ask your blessing on confirmands, parents, teachers and mentors that we may end well. Let us greet confirmation with faith we can lean on, the questions and growing edges that still move in us and a joy in knowing that through Jesus You understand this business of being human and love us in the midst of it all. Blessing and honor, glory and power be unto you! Amen.
