See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land.

Song of Songs 2:11-12

Different climates experience the change of seasons in different ways. For many, the vibrancy of new life, renewal and refreshment associated with springtime lifts the spirit with expectation. It’s a time when we can also be encouraged to cut away any ‘dead wood’ and to ‘spring clean’ our spiritual lives with renewed vitality.
