Thomas Merton once said...

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” 

This is one of the things I love most about being involved with the Proost family.  The simultaneous experience of both finding direction in the incredible work we hear about and share but also getting utterly lost, unable and unsure which direction things will take next.  

There's a few new developments to let you know about from Proost HQ. 

“I imagine Lent for you and for me as a great departure from the greedy, anxious anti-neighbourliness of our economy, a great departure from our exclusionary politics that fears the other, a great departure from self-indulgent consumerism that devours creation. And then an arrival in a new neighborhood, because it is a gift to be simple, it is a gift to be free; it is a gift to come down where we ought to be.” 

Walter Brueggemann


At Christmas we celebrate this amazing idea - that God 'Emmanuel' is with us.  Present in our work, present in our doubts, present at home, present in our joy and celebration.  He says to each of us "I'm with you."  

Novelist Haruki Murakami writes in "South of the Border, West of the Sun" 

"For a while" is a phrase whose length can't be measured.  At least by the person who's waiting."
