Suzy and I have just returned from Dallas where the twelve year old philosophers were confirmed. I certainly obtained lot’s of material for future posts, and enjoyed being with my family and their friends. I was impressed with the seriousness and enthusiasm that the boys brought to the ceremony, and to their future commitment to service. They had spent a year in preparation for this Sunday, and it appears to have taken.

I was also amazed and a little bit embarrassed that the twins godparent’s attended after traveling from Kansas City, and Australia. (That’s right the continent, not a wide spot in the road in west Texas). The third godparent, but for a family emergency, would have been there as well. They each took their roles much more seriously and enthusiastically than I have in the past.

The conversation after the confirmation gave me hope for my church and the future. More to follow.
