My best friend Brigitte and I met in 1972 in confirmation class.
At that time, our church redesigned confirmation classes and made it very practical with many joint activities and discussions
Question: Was the summer of 1972 with our confirmation group so special for you too?
Brigitte: yes, definitely, these were new experiences for me - it was exciting to do so much together, but also to work out and discuss things together in groups - new thoughts and ideas, to get to know the Bible differently - we did a lot of free time that we spent at the lake near Königslutter
Me: It was new for me to experience a lot together with so many different people. I liked the freedom and the "we" feeling and that the day was divided so completely differently. I also found it interesting to talk to each other about feelings, life and the Bible

Question: do you remember certain events?
Brigitte: I found singing songs particularly nice because I was learning to play the guitar back then and was able to accompany most of the songs well
Me: yes, you are right that singing was very nice, especially the new songs that we learned

Question: What did you dislike?
Brigitte: We also argued, the boys in particular often wanted to do different things than the girls and sometimes they did too much nonsense
Me: I found that some of the group had a hard time and were excluded at the time

Question: how important is this summer to you in retrospect?
Brigitte: Very important, it opened up new perspectives for me and I made new friends and you as my best friend
Me: It was incredibly important to me, I got to know so much about it and other opinions and - yes - exactly - you as my best friend
