While I am at it, I just also want to show off what I received for my confirmation, apparently on May 2, 1976. I think a crucifix like that makes a excellent present and memento. You actually put in on the wall and look at it, instead of receiving little booklets that end up who knows where.
This little crucifix hangs in our dining room now and I have never seen a confirmand here receive anything like it. Also precious is that you have your verse on the back and you can't forget it. Mine was, as you can see, Romans 1:16. Well, there are many wonderful verses, each more wonderful than the other, but this one is especially wonderful! :)
Paul writes: "I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes; first for the Jew, then for the Gentile (the Greek)."
I think it has been a good verse for me. It has made me bolder and happier.
The point is, I wish our confirmands here could have something like that.
