Uncle confirmed by mistake during baptism


Allan Sørensen experienced something rather odd the other Sunday when he participated in the baptism of his little half-year-old cousin Rebekka. There was clutter in the priest’s planning or head, for in the midst of the baptism Allan was confirmed. “It’s the whole party that’s watching me, you have to understand. I lost my understanding of the situation. It had to be.” That is what Allan Sørensen said afterwards.

Interpretation 1: “It’s the whole party that’s watching me …” In this language-use we are allowed to be self-ironic: We are uncertain of whether we could find ourselves letting a festive group pressure weigh heavier than our inner-most feelings and religious point of view.

We are uncertain.
