The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod calendar has this day listed as a minor festival on January 1. Normally, I do not take it upon myself to toy with the liturgical calendar but I was concerned that this would be lost amongst the New Year shuffle. At the ages of my children, the actual discussion about and focus on Jesus' name seemed more important than its actual day of observation (especially since I wasn't feeling quite up to the whole circumcision conversation today!), so I waited until there was a little quiet, down-time in our house. We focused on the 'name' (or The Name, in this case) this year. Oddly enough, today is actually the date of this feast in the Roman church.
Cyberbrethren has a lovely post and collection of links to information and reflection on this day.
I once again 'borrowed' an idea from Dawn. It took on its own life as I knew right away both children would insist on doing their own. The 'Chi-Ro' symbol is more frequently observed on the paraments at our church, so I thought it would be a nice addition to the craft. I think we will add some rays and maybe brainstorm on some more names of Jesus tomorrow after to tie up the loose ends.
I had a terrible time getting a picture, as I waited until the sun went down.
