In this “How to Lutheran” episode, Bri offers a heartfelt tribute to that acme of Lutheran artistic expression: the felt Confirmation banner.
Tracing the history of felt making back to its earliest roots in ancient Mesopotamia and touching on the long legacy of faithful women creating liturgical fiber arts as an act of devotion and encouragement, the Ladies also reflect on their own Confirmation memories and consider the significance of this spiritual rite in the lives of those who receive it.
The episode ends with a discussion of Confirmation Bible verses, as Sarah, Erin, and Rachel propose alternate “runner-up” verses for Bri, whose actual Confirmation verse was lost (along with her banner) many years ago.
