The Nativity of St. John the Baptist,
Luke 1:57-66,80

In addition to the name given us by our family at baptism, we also became known as a Christian. It defines us. It tells the world who we are and what should be expected of us. Like John we need to discover what God has created us to be and live out the demands of that call without compromise. How are we improving from the past generation of Christians? What sense of newness and life do we bring to the name Christian?
