We are our calendars.

We are our calendars.

This has a good summary of aspects of 'church year'.

It's possible that 'kalends' engendered 'calendar,' and that kalends was the time in Rome when tithes were paid, and that thus a calendar is an 'amen' to the powers that be.

Rosenstock-Huessy has done good work with calendars. Each order of society gives us a key calendar. Tribes: Community celebrations. Empires: Work schedules. Israel: Ecclesiastical calendars. Greece: Academic

Show me a man's schedule, and I'll tell you who he is.

Now, here is the important part. If a church calendar shows us the life of Jesus Christ, and our response, there is an area of 33 to 34 weeks that could be better articulated.

It's possible that in the future, these 33 or 34 will be some kind of travel through the Bible--and more--in a way similar to how some in Judaism have a day for each of 49 women, from Passover to Pentecost [they use different names, search Omer]. The 22 days from Pentecost to the proposed Public Vindication can be filled with the '22' of Hebrew Scriptures, and 27 (6 + 21) of the Greek, plus the 22 parts of Psalm 119.

What to do with 33 or 34? Perhaps these 22, plus an 11 of pairs, forward and backward.

Love in King Jesus,

PS: And calendars or ecclesiacymatics in response to theocymatics. That is, our psalmodic response to God's creating Word, which is musical. Search 'cymatics' to see a demonstration of sand being formed into geometric figures by different sounds and pitches, etc.
