Confirmation Class uses the Biblical Sex Ed Practices

Pray, Study, Worship, Invite, Encourage, Serve, and Give…
Our Confirmation students are studying the Catechism this season. They are learning about the Ten Commandments, the Creed, The Lord’s Prayer and more alongside Martin Luther’s explanations. These explanations all begin and end the same way; “What does this mean?” and “This is most certainly true.”.

For those who have been in the Lutheran church most of their lives, these phrases can be like a mantra. We encounter a difficult Scripture and ask: What does this mean? We come face to face with a moment of God’s grace and love and respond: this is most certainly true.


It’s an unusual and very non-Lutheran way of looking at faith. After all, Martin Luther encouraged us to always ask: What does this mean? Questions and doubts are in essence the fertilizer of our faith. They allow us to wrestle with life and theology in ways that we must then “lean not into our own understanding” but instead “trust in the Lord” (Proverbs 3:5).

The Holy Spirt does not gift us with certainty, instead she gives us FAITH.

Leaning with you into hope,
Pastor Priscilla
