Something Amazing Happened
At our meeting yesterday evening I heard the amazing story of a small but unexpected incident which took place a couple of weeks ago. Kathy Cook, the artist and co-owner of bare arts brewery in Todmorden, was working on her painting which is to be the logo of the St Paulinus Ale, which has been brewed by bare arts. The painting features a shell, the traditional symbol of pilgrims, along with the sparrow from Paulinus’s Parable.
As Kathy was painting, a sparrow flew in through the window, and perched above her. She managed to catch it and set it free.
If you haven’t already, you need to read The Parable of the Sparrow, by Paulinus, to realise what an extraordinary story it is.
