This Sunday the global church celebrates Pentecost where we remember the outpouring of God's Spirit on those faithful, fumbling, fearful and fascinating disciples. 

We shared a variety of Pentecost resources in our last update 'Wild Spirit' a few weeks ago.  Do follow the link to take a look.

As Easter passes Christian's around the world begin to turn their attention to Pentecost.  Jesus has ascended and asked his disciples to wait for the 'Comforter'.  Then one morning they are filled with God's spirit, the church is formed and the world is changed.  Each year we remember this incredible gift of the Spirit of God, given to each of us.

Throughout the world Christians of all denominations, theologies and cultures are preparing for Easter.  Holy Week seems apt as the events we remember during these next few days mark the core elements of this faith - the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and the hope which is vital to so many. 

You may be planning special prayers or worship or times of retreat or pilgrimage to mark this time and we hope some of these resources may help you.  Do use our Seasons area to find specific Easter resources too.

Lent and Easter are always a busy time for us here at Proost.  This is a naturally contemplative and reflective season where we ask ourselves questions and we begin to gaze with similar amazement at the events of Jerusalem and a man who died on a cross all those years ago. 

Pope Benedict once said at this time of year that "Lent stimulates us to let the Word of God penetrate our life and in this way to know the fundamental truth: who we are, where we come from, where we must go, what path we must take in life.." 

In a way Lent can be a place of decision, reflection and of taking on new things as well as the traditional view of giving up.  It can be a significant time in our lives.
