Family, Adoption, & the Holy Name of Jesus

This sermon was given at Holy Trinity - Chatham on January 1, 2012 by The Rev David Hyman. This was the Feast of the Holy Name.

Home. What does it mean to be home? Home, at its core, is not just about a physical place, it can be that, but it is more centrally about relationship or a set of relationships. Home is the place where I belong and I am accepted. Home is where I have a place at the table – not as a guest but as a welcomed and accepted member of the family.
