100 Things Your Child Should Know Before Confirmation – The Stories of Exodus

Rebecca Kirkpatrick is an ordained pastor in the PC(USA) and has written an interesting blog called called “Bread, Not Stones” from her experiences teaching the Confirmation Class at her local church.  She has also published a new book, “100 Things Every Child Should Know Before Confirmation.”  It’s worth reading!

Over the course of the next several months, we’ll be re-posting her blog posts for you as she tackles the privilege of guiding our children into a deeper, more trusting relationship with Jesus Christ. May her thoughts, your coaching, and your child’s active participation with their FPC Sunday School small group work together to raise your child to be a faithful follower of our Lord!

One of the most distinctive parts of the Haggadah – the liturgy for the Passover feast – is the way that the readers are called to identify themselves with the story of the Exodus. The story is not just one that our ancestors experienced, but one that we ourselves have lived. This is the epitome of embodying the biblical story. In an ideal situation, even Christian children would know and live this story in the same way, bringing that same identification with the Exodus and the stories of Moses to their Confirmation explorations.

These are the kinds of things that the stories of the Exodus can help us explore.
