Members of the Confirmation Collaborative share their enthusiasm:
“Those who think we can hold fast to yesteryear and confirmation as a sort of rite of adolescent rite of passage are in denial. Those who think we should simply rush it to a quick and ready grave are in danger of disposing of something of immense value. For confirmation can and should be the sacramental rite of the middle.”Rt. Rev. James Mathes, “A Liturgy for the Messy Middle” in Signed, Sealed, Delivered: Theologies of Confirmation for the 21st Century (Morehouse Publishing, 2014), 58.
