A Little Gift-Giving Help For My Friends

If you’re in search of a great holiday gift for a relative, pastor, or friend, a beautiful calendar is the gift that keeps giving all year `round. Last year, I heard of a few people who bundled my book about the Jewish and Christian calendars with a 2017 calendar.Moments & Days: How Our Holy Celebrations Shape Our Faith is an evergreen title that can be used year after year, combining it with a 2018 calendar is a way to extend your gift even further.

To make your Christmas shopping a little easier, I’ve highlighted five unique 2018 calendars that touch on some of the themes in the book.* (And read to the bottom of this post, as I have a special offer to share that’ll make your gift-giving a little more personal.)


The Salt of the Earth 2017-18 calendar features beautiful contemporary art plus calendar grids ordered by the liturgical seasons, not the standard months of the year. Would make a great gift for a church leader. $15.95 + shipping


The 2017-2018 “The Lord Dwells In Zion” Messianic Jewish calendar is gridded by standard months, but includes all Jewish holidays, a listing of all weekly Torah portions, and more. We have this one hanging in our kitchen, Note that as the Jewish New Year begins (usually) in September, this calendar has already been in use, but it may be a great gift for someone interested in getting more serious about learning about the Hebrew roots of their faith in 2018. $22.95 + shipping


The Faith In Motion monthly calendar features stunning art by Lavarne Ross. Many of the gorgeous, celebratory paintings were inspired by images from the iconic Alvin Ailey American Dance company. $14.95 + shipping


Each month of this Catholic resource covers 165 years of church history. I’m really tempted to order the Timeline 2018 Calendar of Church History for my office space! $16.95 + shipping


Though the coloring trend may have peaked, the Coloring Your Jewish Year calendar, printed on paper designed for coloring, may inspire you or your recipient to revisit this contemplative and restful activity it in 2018. $14.99 + shipping.
