Confirmation

(for those curious folks out there)

We have had two gathering times (4 if you count the makeup sessions). I’ll refer to them as “rounds” in this post

Round One: Intro
– Why confirmation?
– Significance of being baptized into community, church, God’s family
– Forgiveness

Round Two of Confirmation: Prayer
– What is prayer? Why do we pray?
– Psalms (Mad, Sad, Glad)
– Luther on the Lord’s Prayer (Luther’s Small Catechism)
– Music as prayer

During “Round Two” I had the kids write out three types of prayers: what makes them mad, sad and glad
– We burned what makes us mad (let anger burn up)
– We put our sad prayers in the water of the baptismal font (written with washable markers so the words disappeared)
– We laid what makes us glad either on the baptismal font or the altar

Our mad prayers are burning
