Our church has a tradition of instructing young men and women before they become members of the church and so they are able to understand how to examine themselves properly for Communion... it is a two year class process that is really an accomplishment, with memory work, discussion concerning contemporary issues and church history.
This year our youngest is part of the class that has completed the instruction and sat with the church elders in questioning. That is pretty scary for 8th graders!
We will celebrate with a dinner after church and each place setting will have a treat.
