Hello My Name is Christian

I don’t remember what inspired the name tag theme for this one, if it came from the devotion I read that day, or something else.  But now, this very morning, months later, it feels even more relevant.  Post inauguration and post woman march.

I wonder how many of the people protesting last Thursday or women marching Saturday would have handled it if I wore one of these nametags?  It says that I am not putting my needs above any other person.  It says that I value all lives–unborn babies, colors, ethnicities, old, male and female, rich and poor, LG(all those letters..all those people)–every created people.  It says that I value generosity over getting more.  It says that I would not feel comfortable carrying a sign with foul language that announces how I much I disagree with others (isn’t that hate????).  It says that I don’t put my trust or hope in one human man that might be in charge for 4-8 years.  Nope, my faith is in a guy who has been around since the beginning and is eternal.

Would they have welcomed me?

Or as Jesus warned, would they have shunned me?

So I didn’t march, I never will.

But I will continue to wear my nametag.  I will continue to spread love one person at a time.  I will love on the children of all mamas–privileged and not.  I will in faith and hope and encourage others to do the same.

My hope is that you do as well.

Go, Tell, and make disciples of all nations--spread the good news.
