Hello, My Name is

Today is National Nametag Day!  Yeah, that’s right.  I wrote about this last year as well, (oh and evidently before, so  reread this one too!).  It seem this is “Celebrate Your Name Week“, or for people in the know that’s simply called CYNW.

So, I continue to celebrate this particular part of CYNW with a another post about name tags!  I began by thinking what I might place on my name tag besides my given name, which as you know, was celebrated this past Sunday with the remembrance of Namesake day.

I thought about ‘Manwell’, or ‘The Most Interesting Man in the World”, or simply “Harry”.  But despite that I still would be me.  However, there is one name that I could place on there, that would actually take my place, and change my behavior.  Look at this

For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. Gal 3:27

So today, I wear a name tag that simply says “Hello my name is… Jesus”.

I hope I can represent him well.

Fun with Names Day

I keep finding these absolutely ridiculous days, and I keep finding this desire to share them – and I am not even sure why.

For instance, this week is Celebrate Your Name Week, which evidently goes by the acronym CYNW.  And today is Fun Facts about Names Day.  Odd.  You can check out the web site and see all sorts of fun facts that will make this day terrific for those you share them with!

So since it is CYNW week, I just thought maybe a quick reminder about the many names of that guy we claim to follow might be a refreshing start to Monday morning.  So I searched the Interwebs and found this wordle.  There all the go now it seems.

That’s a pretty good list, and it reminds me of this verse from Isaiah that describes some of those names


6 For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.  Isaiah 9:6  New International Version (NIV)

Those seem like a description of a dude that might be a good one to hang around and learn from!
