Saying "Yes" to Faith
The word "Confirmation" comes from Latin and means "strengthening" or "to make firm". It revolves around a festive act of blessing which is practiced primarily in Evangelical congregations. It marks the transition into the Church's coming of age for the mostly 13 or 14-year-old confirmees. In this way, they take their place as a full member in the congregation for all to see. The Confirmees consciously say "yes" to their Christian faith and in this way the representative profession of faith from their parents or godparents from their Baptism is superseded. The newly recognised members of the congregation also have a range of rights and responsibilities. Taking part in Holy Communion (The Lord's Supper) and the blessing to become a godparent are examples of some of the new rights. In contrast to Catholic Confirmations, Protestant Confirmations aren't a matter of a sacrament.
During the Confirmation service young people receive a blessing by having the Bishop lay their hand upon the Confirmee's head and then the Confirmee prays a special prayer which they are often allowed to choose for themselves and should then accompany them through their lives.
Christian Gifts for Confirmations
For the confirmee as well as for the parents, Confirmation is a big day which is typically fittingly celebrated after the Church service. Family, friends and acquaintances celebrate the conscious decision to profess their faith as a young Christian. The now adult member of the congregation is often given a number of gifts. Often the selection doesn't stray far from monetary gifts. For those who the pure material value is less important to, LOGO is exactly the right place. We offer a wide range of low priced and beautiful gifts for Confirmation which would thrill any young person. Popular religious gifts are badges, chains and necklaces or leather bracelets for example. Alongside a lovely card with personal greetings and blessings these are wonderful gift ideas as they'll act as a long-lasting reminder for the young Christian of this big day throughout their lives. Fashion-conscious young people can carry their faith out into the world with pieces of jewellery and will be reminded wherever they are that God, friends and family are always on their side.
