Confirmation doesn’t exist to assign you memory work while the world makes fun of you for believing weird stuff.  Confirmation isn’t a hurdle to jump through.  The faith we learn to confess is a shield against the devil, an answer to the world, and a comfort to troubled consciences.  We’re not just learning what our faith is, but why it’s important. The world asks tough questions. You’re learning the answers.  We’ll look at the Small Catechism and how it speaks to the world’s accusations against Christians, the fights we have with each other, and our own struggles with sin, guilt, and shame.

Pastor Goodman graduated from Concordia Theological Seminary and now serves the saints of St. Paul Lutheran Church, Winside NE and St. Paul Lutheran Church, Carroll NE. He and his wife Lisa and have two children.
