The Holy Name

Happy New Year.

On this day we celebrate the naming of Jesus.

Eternal Father, you gave your incarnate Son the holy name of Jesus to be the sign of our salvation: Plant in every heart, we pray, the love of him who is the Savior of the world, our Lord Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.

In peace,

the Rev. Linda McCloud
The Episcopal Church of Our Savior at Honey Creek
