What’s in a Name?

Luke 2:21-24

Prayer for the Day

God, thank you for knowing each and every one of our names. We celebrate our individuality even with names that have been used before. And we celebrate Jesus who, though he had a common name, was far from common. Help us, oh Lord, to live beyond our names and as your children. Amen.

Question

What does your name mean? How did you get your name? What does it mean to you?
