Reflection: For years a calendar in the kitchen had been where we kept track of meetings, appointments, lessons, vacations, games, piano tuner coming,... EVERYTHING all written down on by hand and that was where we checked to see who was doing what where when.
Then I discovered Google Calendar on my electronic device and now I find myself writing less and less on the paper calendar in the kitchen. I can check it, add events and put in reminders anytime and anywhere. I can also share the calendar with others.
I am particularly finding the reminders to be very helpful. Paul wrote a reminder to the people of Corinth. Now I would remind you, brothers and sisters, of the good news I proclaimed to you, which you in turn received, in which you also stand. I Cor. 15: 1.
Perhaps I could add that verse as a daily reminder in my calendar. Obviously the Corinthians needed to be reminded of the good news. It’s probably a good idea to remind ourselves often, too, and share with others. -- Ruth Gates
