Haddon Mark is here!

Where would we get a name like that?  Haddon is from “The Prince of Preachers,” Charles Haddon Spurgeon.

Charles “Haddon” Spurgeon

His middle name was a little more difficult to decide. We were thinking John initially (it seems to be the name of choice for popular Reformed theologians), but landed on Mark.  So the choice was between two Gospel writers.  I wish I had more of a clear reason for choosing Mark over John, but it’s primarily because Krista felt that it sounded better.

He was born at 7:51 AM on Sunday, May 16 at 8 lbs. 6.1 oz. and 20″ long.  Just early enough for me to still make it to Crossroads to preach at 10:30…
