Too often, we rush from one activity to the next without allowing ourselves any time to reflect on our experiences. We need to slow down and look over what we have done and then move on to the next thing. These are questions I shared at the final session of a confirmation class to give us time to reflect on what we had done together and what we would do next.
I hope you’ll use these questions in your confirmation classes or adapt them to help yourself reflect on an ending before moving on to your next thing.
What is left?
Any last minute questions?
What do you wish we had done?
What was the best part of confirmation?
What was the worst part of confirmation?
What would you change?
What books of the Bible did you read? And what did you think of them?
Say a little something about your time with mentors?
What did you think about the meeting of the church you attended?
What about your service project?
So where do we go from here? After confirmation, you have the opportunity to be a member of this congregation. We’ve talked about what you plan to do as a member. In youth group, we filled out the time and talents surveys.
What are your hopes for your church?
What do you think you’ll remember about confirmation in 10 years?
