JC is being confirmed on Sunday. Confirmation really refers to confirming the vows that were made on your behalf at baptism. In the Methodist Church, it is a program of classes that teach the kids about Christianity in general and the history and beliefs of the Methodist Church in particular. As part of the class, the kids were asked to write a faith statement, which they shared with their parents (and a few others) at a dinner a couple of weeks ago.
The faith statements were all different, and really all over the place in terms of what the kids said about faith, confirmation, and the whole process they've gone through. I thought JC's was great, and he agreed that I could share it here. John and I did not have any input, in fact, the dinner was the first time we had heard any of it.
