We live in a world just as confused and confusing as Paul’s was. And if we talk about our faith openly, we may get shot down, too. Christianity doesn’t have a lot of authority or credibility in some circles. Speaking faith to critics and skeptics can be scary. It’s just easier not to speak out.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. We can find our voices, too; and our Confirmands have given us a head start. They have given us their words of faith, words that others can easily understand: about the One who sought out those who were considered lost, and loved them, the One who restored people’s hope, the One who showed just how far God’s love can go. They know the challenge ahead – for them, and for us - can we spread God’s Word by living and loving the way Jesus taught us?
With God’s help, we’ll find our voices, too.
