I didn’t exactly mean to … but I think I’m getting confirmed at an Anglican church this spring.
And that is one sentence I never expected to say.
When my family’s asked why I’m doing this, I’ve started comparing it to getting a new pair of shoes. Sure, it fits imperfectly — maybe even uncomfortably — at first, but somehow you just know it’s right.
Except this is the soul we’re talking about and not just the sole on my sneakers. (Couldn’t resist!)
There are many reasons why even starting confirmation is surprising me, as I’m used to being a nondenominational, skeptical, authority-resisting, twenty-first century twentysomething. But that makes it all the more exciting. I have a lot to learn, and hopefully I’ll be writing about it, especially over the next several weeks.
