Here are more pictures from the service in which Fynn's third-grade confirmation classes celebrated their parting. Five mothers took on a handful of eight year-olds once a week for three months and taught them something about the meaning behind the church's most important symbols.
At the final church service they took communion with bread and grape juice.
Fynn liked the grape juice. But he enjoyed even more the afternoon meetings with Yvonne and the five girls in his confirmation group.
This is the whole group of kids from the confirmation classes. Of course, they won't really be confirmed until eighth grade, but these afternoons with the mothers served to lay a foundation for their future religious instruction.
The blonde woman in the middle of the back row was in my first theater group at the PH in Freiburg. It was nice seeing her again here in Stuttgart!
