Happy Easter Faith Family! It was so good to see so many of you this past Sunday in worship. Christ is Risen! As we live into this Easter Season, I have found myself pondering something...
Names are such a funny thing. If it wasn't enough what name we are given, we also have the names we choose for ourselves, and the names our loved ones choose for us. We almost all have some story we attach to our names or nicknames. For whatever reason, over my lifetime I have accumulated almost 20 nicknames. I think about these names and the stories behind them, and I am inevitably drawn to remember different people in different stages of my life. Names have meaning, even if that meaning isn't something we can put to words.
Names can also tell us something about ourselves. We are people who call ourselves Christian. More specifically, we are people who call ourselves Methodists. Given the time of the liturgical year, we might even call ourselves Easter People. What does this mean for our lives? What does this mean for our identity? What names have you chosen for yourself? What do they say about you?
Come and join us this week at Faith UMC as we explore the question "What Should I Call You?" We'll be worshipping at 9:30 and 11:00 am and I hope to see you there!
