A Big Step For Me!

As of this upcoming sunday, I will be confirmed into the Episcopal Church! (American equivalent of Anglican Church) This is really an important change for me and I am excited and I want to share this with the rest of you!

Congratulations!

Congratulations! I was confirmed myself when I was 11 I believe. I'm non-denominational now.

Congrats.

@Prime--it's a rite of passage w/in religion. It's kind of like a Bar Mitzvah for Jews. You're expected to have developed a greater knowledge of your faith by that point and sometimes to be able to demonstrate that if called upon. Confirmation, at least in the Catholic Church is usually a group event (vs I think a more solitary event in Judaism, but don't hold me to that as I'm not Jewish). I'm guessing that's probably the case w/Episcopalians too.

Question for you, Te Darasuum Mandalor. Were you also required to take a class before you could be considered confirmed?

I see!

So then we need to attach the Stone of Triumph to Te Darasuum Mandalor?

@ OP: Congratulations! Perhaps this is a step into a larger world for you.

I myself am a non denominational. Always was.

@Toten: I've been invited to Bar-Mitzvahs and Ba`t-Mitzvas, and yes I believe you are correct in the general sense. However, I'm (obviously) not religiously jewish either (only by family), so the specifics I'm still not at all sure of.

LOF, yes, I am taking classes with my youth pastor and the eight or so other kids that are being confirmed. The rest of the youth group also attends the class because they regularly go to Pizza With a Purpose, our Wednesday evening bible study. We are killing two birds with one stone by substituting PWP with classes. And I think I will pass on Prime's rock idea!

My confirmation is a pleasant memory because not only did it mean the end of 5 years of confirmation classes, it also meant that, per a previous agreement with my parents, I would no longer have to attend church services if I didn't want to. I guess that, when they made that agreement, they figured that after all of those years I would be sufficiently conditioned to the point that I would attend services voluntarily. They were wrong. When that became apparent they tried to guilt-trip me into attending anyway. They failed.

That sucks My parents were not like that about religion, but pretty much everything else. Always with the mind games. After college, about 3 months after I got my first paycheck, I was outta there.

There is nothing more distressing to me than the notion of standing around on clouds after I die with members of my family. Bleh!

This was indeed a decision made by yours truly. I told myself that I am at the age and I am ready to be confirmed. A lot of kids were forced, but my parents are so loving and supportive, they would even support me if I wanted to convert. I am not saying I will, but that is just to show how my parents are. My neighbors however would just ground or scold their kids if they said anything relating to converting, even to a different faith!

My friend and ninth cousin is also being confirmed. She is only a sixth grader and eleven years old (turning twelve in May) and is very mature in her spiritual journey.

Congratulations, mrcharlton!

Being from an Open Brethren background, i got a dunk in the baptistry when i was 14. (usually a solemn-ish occasion, but looking at the photos, i was smiling like an idiot )
When that happens, you become an 'official' member of the church (like, the specific assembly i go to, not the denomination or religion). Im thinking Confirmation is a direct equivalent to this, so from anotha brotha in the faith, i give you a big 'HI!, and welcome to officialness! '

Quote:

There are people like this all over. I know some, you know some. Id recommend this verse when considering them, its sort of a maxim for me:

Quote:

I don't know if you're judging them, or if you're a judgmental person, and while we're technically allowed to judge those in the faith, id say just keep that verse in mind and think about what it means.



mfw I read the Revan novel

it is not a cry of joy.

I am not a judgemental person, I am just making an observation about my neighbors. They are good people however. I am not a big fan of those people who judge people by their religion and say "You are eternally damned to Hell." No, that is crap, Jesus loves everybody as it says in the Bible. I believe that actions judge over who recieves salvation, not religion. Some people say "As long as you are Christian, you are saved!"


Well, Hitler considered himself Christian, but he commited the worst acts of genocide anybody could ever commit. It does not make sense if Hitler goes to heaven and a really rightious Muslim does not just of what he believes.

I think I was 13 or 14, it was when I was in 8th grade I think. I honestly don't think I've been back to my church since then, its half changed beliefs and half laziness before I changed my beliefs. But congrats.

Out of curiosity: do you have to memorise the articles of the Church of England?

Sorry, I meant this. All the stuff to do with the double-predestination of man, and good works being the product of good faith.

Congratz, I just started confirmation, and I'm Lutheran so Confirmation is different for all denominations, except Baptists don't confirm, unless I am wrong

All Churches without bishops have confirmation. The contemporary Christians such as non-denomination and Baptists don't. Quakers don't either.

Well, congratulations. I'm Catholic myself, and while I have some trouble keeping track of that many denominations and don't the exact kind of confirmation (we're baptized at a very young age, when we're not even a year old, based on the belief of cleansing the original sin - but we still get this "confirmation" when we're 15, under chrismation's name) , I can see it's a matter of importance for you.

CTRL ALT DEL: In the Episcopal Church, we also baptize young, usually on the first easter of a Child's life. I was baptized April 26 1997, about 9 months after my birth.
