It's been a busy and exciting August for Proost and there's a little more to come.
As promised we have an exciting new product to launch this week. Learning to Love is Proost's first poetry collection. Its 247 pages of poems written by many of you - by people from the Proost family - who responded to editor Chris Goan's request for poems on social media in April 2013. Since that first request hundreds of poems have been submitted and a vibrant and challenging collection of new poetry has emerged. We're incredibly excited about this.

Summer is here and at Proost we're gearing up for a busy and exciting summer. Over the holiday period we'll be launching a number of new products including 'Learning to Love' a poetry anthology of work contributed by people all over the UK and around the world and compiled by our friend Chris Goan. It's gutsy earthy honest poetry by normal people like you and me. We'll be issuing more details very shortly. We're also excited that some of these poets and poems will feature at this years Greenbelt festival in Northampton, UK.
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.
