I am the sun. I am fire and light.
I'm the first one
At the end of the night
Who heard of your naming day,
God told me to whisper
The news to my sister:
A child will be named today.


"A lilting, bright reminder of the gifts of baptism."
—H. George Anderson, Presiding Bishop Evangelical Lutheran Church in America

"A masterful synthesis of doctrine shared by Christians in all churches. Relates biblical teaching to the primal elements of creation in a way parents can teach and children can understand. My own faith was renewed as I read it. Every child of God should have it."
—The Rev. Canon J. Robert Wright, General Theological Seminary of the Episcopal Church
