What is confirmation?  Have we turned it into a law?  Isn't this the responsibility of the parent?  How do we know what the appropriate age is for confirmation? These are some interesting questions and always seem to be in the forefront of my mind when thinking about confirmation.  I agree it is important that children be solid in the basic understandings of the doctrine of the church.  Some churches teach confirmation at the 5th and 6th grade level, and some teach it in high school.  Is confirmation the responsibility of the pastor or the parent?  What role do/should the parents play in confirmation. I still struggle with what is the best route to take and I would like your input and thoughts about confirmation.  Interesting topic........ Slave of Christ, Pastor Shawn
