In My Name Award Recipient: Mary Ann Nelson
The “In My Name” award recognizes both an individual and an organization who exemplify these words from the Gospel of Mark, “John said to him, ‘Teacher, we saw a man using your name to force demons out of people. But he wasn’t one of us, and we told him to stop.’ Jesus said to his disciples, Don’t stop him! No one who works miracles in my name will soon turn and say something bad about me. Anyone who isn’t against us is for us. And anyone who gives you a cup of water in my name, just because you belong to me, will surely be rewarded.” (Mark 9:38-41) We are grateful to those who serve others in the name of Christ, for in doing so, they are also serving the Lord.
