As children, often too young to speak for ourselves, we have our commitment to Christ made for us by our families and godparents. As we continue to learn about this commitment to the Christian life through participation in worship and mission in the community, there will come a time when we are mature enough to renew our promises through the sacrament of Confirmation. This is where we come before the bishop, or overseer of our Anglican communities in this part of the state, known as a Diocese. We make our baptismal promises afresh, in our own words, and of our own volition, before the bishop. The bishop then lays hands on your head and prays God’s blessing over you, before once again anointing you with holy oil in the sign of the Cross. It takes courage and maturity to take this step in our faith, but as with baptism, you have not only the Lord’s protection, but you are part of a loving and supportive parish community, who will continue to help you grow and develop in your faith and service of others. As Jesus says, we have a new commandment, to love one another as he loves us; holistically and abundantly.
