Swee-swee and the Cobbler

Dear Listener,

We are not so different from birds ...
I adapted this story from one that appears in the writings of Richard Wurmbrand, a Romanian Christian pastor who was imprisoned by the communists for his faith. He spent some 14 years in prison, much of it in solitary confinement and enduring torture on a daily basis. He was beaten so badly he was never able to wear shoes again. In spite of this he has written some of the most profound and powerful stories and sermons I have ever read. He was a master of the parable and this one, about a caged bird, is just one of the many that came to mean a great deal more to him, no doubt, as he lay in his cell.

The sound-track is from David Modica's album "The Water is Wide" - available from magnatune.com.

As usual, you can download the episode by clicking here, or by clicking on the embedded player at the top of this post (if you have quicktime installed), but by far the best way to get this podcast is to subscribe with iTunes or subscribe to the feed with your podcatcher of choice.

We hope that you enjoy this story and we look forward to bringing you more on an increasingly regular basis in the coming months. All being well, we are planning to move up to weekly podcasts in early September.

Sweet dreams!
