What is an Orthodox Daily Planner?
An Orthodox Daily Planner is for the faithful woman who wants to be organized and further her spiritual life. Throughout the planner there are quotes from Orthodox Church Fathers and Mothers. It includes both Gregorian and Coptic calendar dates that are easily accessible, and a monthly prayer guide to organize your prayers so when you're doing daily Quiet Time you don't feel overwhelmed and can look back to see how far God has brought you.
The Orthodox Christian woman is graceful and understands her spiritual life isn't wrapped with a bow and that it comes with work. The Orthodox Christian woman is willing to put in that work and lift up her fellow Orthodox sisters along the way.
What is the Coptic Calendar?
The Coptic calendar, also called the Alexandrian calendar, is a liturgical calendar used by the Coptic Orthodox Church, a Church part of the Oriental Orthodox Church. This calendar is based on the ancient Egyptian calendar dependent on the solar year. Twelve months, eleven months consisting of 30 days and an additional 'short month', all totaling 365 days.
Why didn't you use Eastern Orthodox dates?
Here at JOT. Design, we happen to both be Oriental Orthodox and when we started creating the Orthodox Daily Planner we found we were more familiar with the Coptic Calendar. We also agreed that we wouldn't be giving the Eastern Orthodox Church sufficient credit to its beauty by not understanding and experiencing her for many years. We very much love our Eastern Orthodox family and hope that by including feast days and quotes of Eastern Orthodox saints we can show the true nature of the Church - a unified Body. "one Lord, one faith, one baptism." [Ephesians 4:5]
