Through the Lens of Faith

God calls us each by name. God knows our name so well there is no need to consider wearing a name tag. IMG_0080

Name tags are helpful for us to know each other. We start as strangers yet become friends who know each other by name. We were named by our parents, a name inspired by God and influenced by our parents’ experiences.

I wonder though how we can name our experiences of faith and God. If you had to wear a name tag that didn’t identify you by name, but by your faith experience, what name would you write down?

I also marvel at the fact that sometimes we may be seeing God right in front of us, but without a name to put with the face, so to speak, we miss more than we can anticipate.

What’s your name?
