Building a community of grace in Freiburg


A particularly special confirmation celebration was held in March in the Anglican Church in Freiburg. Many members of the congregation received the sacrament of confirmation, including one of the children of the priest, the Revd Canon Christopher Parsons.

The Anglican Church in Freiburg is clear about its mission: "We are engaged in a lifelong task which is to build a community, made up of a wonderful mixture of ages and races, whose most abiding quality is ‘grace’," is an inviting statement from their website. It is evident that they are doing quite well in building such a community of grace, given the joy that I perceived at the celebration.
