The unique Manna Calendar can help any Christian grow closer to God and enjoy a deeper, more meaningful faith. Unlike other devotional aids, it offers uplifting yet down-to-earth and easy-to-read poetry with lilting, traditional rhymes. A perpetual calendar, it can be started any time of the year, re-used for another year, or passed on to a loved one. For every day of any year Manna Calendar presents a stimulating and empowering poem of Christian love, hope, or encouragement, as well as a related verse from the New International Version of the Bible. The poems directly address everyday joys and shortcomings-and respond to all disciples' basic, ongoing need to enhance and vitalize their devotional and spiritual life. Manna Calendar is the creation of Presbyterian elder George Meek, a life-long Bible student who has put his faith into practice by taking the homeless into his home, reading and writing for the blind, providing emotional support for the bereaved, listening to troubled callers on a hotline, and leading a Hispanic support group for jail inmates. He selected the poems in Manna Calendar from more than 3,600 that he wrote over a ten-year span. The words flowed through him-he believes from the Holy Spirit-in the order he wrote them, meter, rhyme, and all.
