This feels like a really crass, silly and trivial thing to me right now, but it’s a pressing issue, so I’m looking for some help:

We’ve recently come to the place in our church start experiencing where we need to open a bank account for the church. We’ve received some offerings given as acts of worship to God, and we’re responsible to be good stewards of that. Opening the account is o.k. with me. The thing I’m struggling with is the fact that we’re gonna have to name the account something . . . and we don’t have a name for the church yet. Frankly, I’m not comfortable with assigning a name to it just yet because I’d really prefer that whatever name we use be developed from within the community in an organic sort of way. Naming it at this point seems a little artificial and superficial.

So what do you think? Any ideas on what we should call this thing? Oohh, I know, I know – I’ll start a little contest right here on my blog. If you have any names for the new community, e-mail me, or leave your ideas in the comments. Hey, maybe I should put the name on the auction block for corporate sponshorships. You know . . . “Focus on the Family Christian Church” or “LifeWay Church of God”. I’ll stop now before I throw up.
