I invited one of my stellar colleagues to address the Confirmation class about her leadership of our church’s interfaith relationships. Introducing students to church leaders outside the youth ministry staff and volunteers is an important function of Confirmation. So I began the hour, “Raise your hand if you’ve met Pastor Nanette before.”
To my surprise, every hand went up. “Wow,” I responded. “How do you all know her already?”
Someone answered right away: “Because she came to Confirmation once already.”
I found this on my guide for Confirmation on October 3rd: “Introduce and briefly interview Nanette.”
I have reached the stage where I’m doing things I forgot I already did.
