“A [family] calendar is a moral document”

Sojourners magazine editor Jim Wallis reflects here on how becoming a father late in life has led him to see that a calendar is a moral document.

“I began to build my speaking and travel schedule,” he says, “around things like Little League baseball, or even just putting them to bed at night — which I now do most nights of their lives. After a while, I realized I wasn’t just doing this for them — but also for me.”

What do our family calendars say about what, and who, we value most? And dads, Happy Father’s Day!
