Living by Our True Names

Each one of us has many names: the names given to us by our friends, and family, our opponents, our co-workers, our achievements, by our weaknesses, and by our fears. By the stranger. By the mountains. By our descendants. Which names do you claim with pride, and which do you refute or ignore? To which names would you devote yourself? By what names would you be called? And what are the names of this congregation? What could they be? This service draws on wisdom of psychologist Erik Erikson, Buddhist leader Thich Nhat Hahn, and Jewish poet Zeldon Schneersohn Mishkovsky, all of whom invite us into the spiritual practice of living by our true names.
