On the 1st Sunday of Advent, Laura Eriksson reminded us that what we are called is a big part of our identity. A birth announcement is an opportunity for parents to highlight part of their family history or express an aspiration for the child’s character. The name of Jesus (Yeshua) has been held in high honour because it means “Yahweh saves!” As we heard in The Naming of Jesus, a sonnet by Malcolm Guite, “We call your name that we might hear a call.” [KH]
