And His Name Shall Be Called...

My mom told me she'd know the name of my son was official when she saw it posted on my blog. Since Dawn and I have been calling him by name for the last few weeks, I think it's official. His name is Noah John Mihelis. We both like the sound of Noah, not to mention the biblical significance (minus the part of him getting drunk and... well you know). John, as you may have imagined, is primarily honoring John Piper who has impacted me through his writings and shaped my view of God more than any other individual in the world. I say primarily, because it was also intentional sensus plenior - John also honors John Calvin, Jonathan Edwards (who influenced Piper), John Murray, Owen, Bunyan, Flavel, of course the Apostle and every other John who was a great calvinist :-) Our prayer (and we hope that you will join us) is that our Noah too, will find grace in the eyes of the Lord.
