A Name In Motion
Names can shape identity or character in powerful ways. When Moses asks God’s name, God responds with a verb: “I am becoming who I am becoming.” What does it mean, then and now, to be in relationship with a God who claims a name that is an action, a movement, a verb, a becoming…? Even as we weary of the constant adaptation required of us, especially now, may we experience some comfort knowing that our God is on the move with us.
