Scheduling, organising, planning and arranging allow us to keep our day-to-day, week-to-week and month-to-month lives in order, and we seem to love doing it. In almost any home, you’re likely to find a calendar somewhere. Whether it’s hanging on a wall, stuck to the fridge or set on top of our desk, we love our physical calendars. But in an age where so much of our lives happen on computers and smart phones, why do we prefer paper calendars for marking down dates and events? The answer, when you consider our spiritual being and how it causes us to react to the world around us, is stunningly obvious. Calendars allow us to look at and physically hold the future. We can see what is coming, make plans for the future and set them down in black and white (or, if your calendar is anything like mine, in black in on top of pictures of puppies).
