Well the new year has dawned cold and blowy here in Seattle but still a day of looking forward and hoping for something better.
On the liturgical calendar this is also Holy Name Day which commemorates the day on which Jesus was named. Last year I posted a couple of prayers that you might like to think about as you consider the many names by which we know Jesus. Perhaps you would like to spend some time meditating on the many names by which you have known Jesus over the years. You may like to start with this reflection that I wrote last year What’s In A Name Or if you have not seen the video That’s My King, its a great place to start in contemplating the names of Jesus.
After some time of reflection you may like to participate in this liturgy that I wrote several years ago after reflecting on the names of Jesus.
And please do share your thoughts and reflections as you too spend time meditating on the wonder of Christ’s names and the many ways in which he has come to you over the years.
