Names are important to all of us. They are how we are recognized as individuals. Names convey a bit about who we are and they are an anchor to help us find one another. Names also change. Maybe it’s the spelling to be more unique or more classical. Last names sometimes change after a marriage. For some, we choose a new name that affirms our identity as we grow to live into exactly who we are.
Our name becoming Q Christian Fellowship is a bold step into who we are and where we go from here. Change sometimes takes getting used to, but when we deal with a little discomfort in the beginning we can get great results in the end. I’m excited about what the future of this fellowship holds!
