Confirmation Games

Confirmation is meant to be a time when the pastor(s) connect with students and bring teach them about the inner truths of the Christian faith. There are serious and holy moments, when students grasp the meanings of sacraments, atonement and forgiveness. But then there are the other moments when the pastors are revealed as all too human. Tonight was one such human moment. Our class began late, students were arriving slowly. So Lisa Holmlund began a game of leap-frog. The students got into it. Then Lisa said "Pastor Don! Pastor Don!" and I was drafted into the line of leap-frogging over the students. When Lisa's turn came. She dutifully leapfrogged over the students and then, I am afraid, over me. She landed hard on her knee and crumpled with pain. After about 15 minutes she knew she needed to go to the ER. Liam, our intern, took her to the hospital. We all prayed for her. She called later to say the doctors told her she really sprained something. Gave her a brace and some Vicodin and told her to go home. All I had was grass stains!
