Dear Students in the Confirmation Program
Yesterday, our class took a hard look at the question, “What’s in a Name?” We learned that Biblical names all have meanings. Further, we learned that many of our surnames (last names) once had a similar meaning (like a “Smith” is someone who worked with metal, a “Baker” was a Baker, etc…). We also learned that when we dishonor God’s Name (2nd Commandment), we sin against Him.
The First Petition deals with keeping God’s name holy among each of us. We pray that we do this by believing in the only True God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit), and by living the life that God calls us to live.
We also saw the Youth Alpha presentation on prayer.
