I think this may be a setting in your operating system. If you are on a PC, in windows open setting, then time and language and then date and time and I think it can be set there. If you are using a Mac others will have to chime in.

Edit: I neglected to welcome you to the forums Marek. I hope you return often.

Hi Bruce, 

Thanks for the tip, but that doesn't seem to be the case. I have a Mac and all calendars (the calendar app and the date/time panel) start with Monday. So it seems that Logos is overriding this somehow and setting Sunday as first day of the week.

That is very strange as every calendar on my Mac starts on Sunday in agreement with every standard calendar in the US.

Where are you located?

Hi Jack, 

I'm from Slovakia, Europe where calendars start with Mondays. The reason all my Mac's calendars start with Monday is because I set it to. (That's why yours are all set to Sundays, because it matches your regional settings). Coincidentally, that also seems to be Logos' default setting and you don't see any problem.

Side note: when I was in vocational church ministry, I set all of my calendars to start on Monday. It made more sense that way from a ministry perspective. I don’t do so now because it isn‘t an issue currently in my personal or professional life.

Thanks for the clarification. In my European travels, I never noticed that—but that was almost 50 years ago Stick out tongue

In US. I set the calendar on my Mac to start on Monday. Mac Calendar and other apps start on Mondays. Logos 9 still starts on Sundays. Wish Logos followed system calendar or had the ability to make calendar in the Sermon Editor start on Mondays. I work toward Sundays, not Mondays.

There is an obvious reason that Bible software starts weeks with Sunday and ends with Saturday/Sabbath--it is the pattern YHWH established at creation. Not only that, but despite the majority of Christianity (never mind secular entities) choosing to worship on the first day of the week, all of Biblical prophecy is irrevocably set to a blueprint which develops Yeishuua`'s return and the millennial period in concord with the 2 Pet. 3:8 prophetic principle; that is, the weekly seventh-day Sabbath rest (i.e the "day") is prophetically intended to correspond to the prophesied rest the world experiences after hassaattaan is cast into the abyss at the beginning of the (seventh) millennium (i.e. the "thousand years").

Of course, part of the "problem" people have is their "sense" that "weekend" as a concept (that is, Saturday and Sunday) ought to rightfully occur at "the end of the week". This, of course, overlooks the fact that a "M-F work week" didn't exist until after the Civil War (for federal employees) and it wasn't until less than a hundred years ago that Ford initiated the 40 hr. wk. in the private sector. In other words, the Sat./Sun. weekend is practically still wet behind the ears. Put another way, the neologistic concept of "weekend" can hardly dislodge a prophetic Biblical principle, though try many will.

And then, contributing to the confusion, there's the awkward and literally thorny fact that Christianity resorted to a novel rest & worship day that prophetically aligns with the "first day" of...the Fall and sin. Inconceivable!

A minor point, but I think you likely meant Saturdays, since that is the last day of most calendar weeks.

Thanks for the history lesson. But I believe you missed my simple request... "Wish Logos followed system calendar or had the ability to make calendar in the Sermon Editor start on Mondays." ... Or whatever day a user wants. My request for the calendar to match the other calendars on my computer has to do with my workflow. Bible software, like all the other apps on my machines are there so I can spend more time with people. Nothing theological, eschatological, prophetic, or historical about my software request. I am most definitely not confused about my workflow. It starts on Monday and ends on Sunday.

There was a discussion of this issue some time ago. IIRC FL recognized the need for the European calendar layout.

Thanks MJ. I remember that. I was just trying hoping to bump that request again.

That's fine...you do you.

You might be surprised.

As you say...but prophecy has a far more expansive purpose than pretty much anyone realizes. Among other things, it functions as gridlines and way points for how Scripture (and everything else) should be perceived. If your workflow is out of sync with a prophetic concept or principle, that's something you should probably have a very deep think about. At the very least--Lk. 2:19. Or not...being your own ruler is an option.

I don't suppose you could just play a mind trick on yourself and say, "My job is to start the week off right!"? That way it makes sense that everything you are doing leads up to "the beginning" of the week.
