Is Your Name a Gift or a Problem?

Posted by Andrew Knight on

His name was Mavuto. I met him the first year I attended Camp Life in Zambia in 2009. Like so many of the children at camp, he was quiet, a bit withdrawn, and blended in with the hundreds of other children who were at camp that week. But since he was in my small group of 10 boys, I had the...

OK, let’s play a game. I’m going to start a poem, and you finish it for me: Roses are red violets are blue… Did you know the rest? Many of us can’t even remember where we first learned that poem. Was it in kindergarten, during Valentine’s Day? Who knows? The...
