We had confirmation at St Thomas the Apostle yesterday and a total of 65 young adults came into full communion with the Church. The Archbishop, as usual, did a great job and engaged each of the confirmadi during the service. Many of them were quite nervous because he does ask questions.
I love these services because we come together as a community and at St Thomas, we have a very diverse community - Black, White, Asian, African, Central American, South American, European and just plain old Americans (I include the Canadians in this category). When I see this gathering, I really believe that we are seeing what Heaven will be like and that our local Church represents that diversity. It makes me very proud.
