Well folks, its nearly the end of October and here in Proost-land we are beginning to contemplate Advent.
This period leading up to Christmas is always one of our busiest times, with people seeking resources and refreshment to anticipate this time of coming light and coming hope.
Advent is the name of the season leading up to Christmas and its traditionally a time of waiting.
Japanese author Haruki Marakami wrote that “ ‘For a while’ is a phrase whose length can't be measured.At least by the person who's waiting.”
We hope the resources on our site help you explore the spirituality of waiting. To get the ball rolling we’d like to point you in three directions:
There are plenty of resources on the site which aim to be companions for this time of waiting. We’d like to particularly recommend Ian Adams wonderful Seeking Light and then the rich and amazing We Who Still Wait (available in both download and physical copy.)
We love all the content on the site but people often enjoy the resource element of the Proost collection - things that give you inspiration to explore new ways of being spiritual at this time.
Why not try…
Advent Calendars and 25 from Si Smith. These beautifully illustrated advent calendars are available as interactive PDF, bonus edition and then bumper ‘25’ edition. All these also feature words from Ian Adams.
Advent Music from the Many. Chicago based collective, The Many are building a collective of songs loved both sides of the Atlantic and this collection is right up there.
Advent Movies. Our friend Jon Birch mixes subversive stories, comedy and great illustration in Noisy Night, Xmas Economy, Immaculate Mary (with Harry Baker). He also created the spine-tingling Apollo Christmas. Why not check them out.
