This has been a long time in coming. Jim and I have been in the Anglican communion (AMIA, ACNA, Scottish Episcopal and Episcopal USA) for most of the past twelve years and have certainly talked about being confirmed, but it has never worked out until now. Feeling planted in this city and having found a church in Richmond, it certainly seemed like the right time. As the bishop prayed over me time seemed to slow down for a moment. I was particularly struck with the meaning of apostolic succession and the connection to church history. Confirmation is such a lovely way to feel a part of the historical church and God's larger story.
