What's in a name?

Jesus was given lots of names - such as Emmanuel, Lord of Lords, King of the Jews, Wonderful Counsellor, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.  What is the significance of such names...and what name might we be given?  To read my sermon to the 2018 Community Carol Service (with Havant Rotary Club) please click here.
