What's your name?

So, during the sermon yesterday, the Pastor tells a little story about a colleague that used to get this pitch from his dad before going out (name changed, as I can't remember it):

"What's your name, son?"
"What's your family name, son?"
How's that spelled?"
"Does that spell Smith? Jones? Johnson?"
"No, sir."
"Then make sure you act like a Marrs."

He then imagined Jesus asking the church (that is, asking us),

"What is your name?"
"Spell it."
"Does that spell New Age, or Self-help, or Anything Goes?"
"No, sir."
"What does it spell?"
"Then make sure you act like it."
