The Confirmation gift

Once upon a time there was one predictable gift confirmation candidates could expect to receive from the church on their confirmation day: a Bible. By then they probably had one. It’s therefore gratifying to hear that on 22 January St Mary’s departed from this custom and presented the candidates with a copy of Tom Wright’s  book ‘Simply Jesus’.
Here’s a Youtube clip of an interview with the author that will give a flavour of what it’s about.

On Thursday 30 March the newly confirmed will meet at the Rectory for a discussion about the book. Could this be the germ of a new initiative more generally at St Mary’s – book club? film club?
