'Tis the season .... well lets face it whether you feel Christmassy or not, the season is definitely upon up with Christmas just over a month away. A well known Coffee brand has it's red cups out, the lights are out in force and soon you'll be decking the halls and getting overwelmed with shopping and cooking. But don't worry .... Proost would love to help you find the heart of Advent again this year with some sparkly resources to help you worship the new born King, both individually and in your churches and communities.

This month Proost is championing those amongst us whose tendency is to pioneer. Whether you're out creating a new form of church, establishing a community project or imagining a new piece of art or poetry, we'd like to celebrate and support you. As commentators continue to write obituaries of the established church as we know it, there are thousands of courageous and creative pioneers who are re-imagining what faith and spirituality looks like in this new century. We hope some of the resources we feature this month may help you in your journey and fuel your faith.
I'm writing this as the UK is having one of it's best summer's for years and today I've been getting my head round going to the Greenbelt Festival in just over two weeks. I know many of our friends in the States be returning from the Wild Goose Festival and many others of you will be attending all sorts of gatherings, often in fields, under canvas, and hopefully with great weather.
If you're a budding poet, seasoned verse writer or secret rhymer then Proost would like to hear from you. Right now we are looking for contributions for a new collection of poetry and we'd like you to be a part of it.
This is a collection written by (and for) people on deliberate spiritual journeys. You could say this about most poetry of course, but we are particularly interested in words concerned with what being a follower of Jesus might mean in our culture.
