Faith reflections: God names us
by Jeanette Bidne
As followers of Jesus, each of us has many names. Child of God. A sheep of Christ’s flock. Disciple of the way.
Our baptismal promises call us to “work for justice and peace.” Do we think of ourselves as peace bearers? How about followers of the way? In this Easter season, I invite you to wonder about the names God declares to you. Perhaps it is your baptismal name and its meaning. Maybe it is a name related to an image of God, like a sheep to a shepherd. What if we lived into the names God calls us?
