Confirmation today was awesome. Yes, my anxiety level was a little out of control, no I didn't really sleep last night, yes everyone was really excited....it was great. The class did a great job following directions and we had a wonderful time even with the logistical nightmare of anointing the entire congregation in the pews--which turned out to be a really incredible symbol and experience. The sermon worked (and was apparently better than I thought it was, at least according to a few people I really trust). The sanctuary was packed and we even had overflow in the lounge downstairs. It was a great day. Even with me forgetting some things and fitting them in later, it worked.
Alan, Alex, Amber, Anna, Carl, Charlie, Collin, Connor, Grayson, Jon, Kayleigh, Kelli, Laura, Mack, Matt, Matt, Norma, Paul, Samantha, and Stacy, it was a privilege to share this part of the journey with you. I hope your adventures in faith and life are wonderful.
