Well, I am leaving in about 10 minutes. I am excited and nervous at the same time.
I think I am mostly nervous because my dh isn’t confirmed and I don’t think he really wants to be. He supports my decisions and is very supportive of me going to church and getting involved in the parish community. We have baptized our children and he is supportive and involved in their upbringing in the church (he just doesn’t go). That probably doesn’t make sense. Basically, he makes sure they attend with me, he sits in when we read their childrens’ bible and he answers questions that they have and he prays with them at bedtime. He just isn’t into the whole “church” part of it. That is where my nervousness comes from.
I agree with you whatevergirl that the pulpit should be a place of teaching. I went through RCIA recently and I really didn’t learn much of anything about the catechism. We pretty much just focused on breaking open the word. Luckily, I knew that I was being called to the Catholic faith and am willing to continue learning all that I can.
One of the things I was also going to ask my priest was about learning more. On Sunday though he announced that he would be holding a Catholic Learning Summer Camp for adults! My question was answered already on that issue and I am so excited to attend. It is next week, so I am very very pumped!
Well, I’ll let you all know how it goes when I get back. I probably won’t be online until later tonight because my dad is coming over for dinner. I’ll check in here after the kids go to bed.
