FOR THE MONTH ~ PUTTING THINGS IN PERSPECTIVE ~


THOUGHT


I was reminded the other day about a true story of something that happened after a forest fire in one of the National Parks in America. After the fire, the forest rangers went in to assess the damage that the fire had caused.


One of the rangers found a bird that was literally petrified in the ashes and it was standing statuesquely on the ground at the base of a tree. The ranger was a bit sickened by the eerie sight and he went to move the dead bird with a stick.


As he gently moved it, three tiny chicks scurried out from under the dead birds’ wings. The loving mother, aware of impending disaster, had got her offspring to the base of the tree and had gathered them under her wings, somehow instinctively knowing that the toxic smoke would rise.


She could have flown to safety but just refused to abandon them. When the blaze had finally arrived, the heat had scorched her small body but the mother had remained steadfast. She had been willing to die, so those under the cover of her wings would live.


That story reminded me of a psalm we find in the bible...


‘He will cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you will find refuge.’


(Psalm 91:4)


That’s a picture of the kind of sacrifice that Jesus made for mankind. He was willing to die so that we can be saved, willing to die so that we might live. Jesus, the one who died, was resurrected and now very much alive, did this for us so that we can walk away from the fire.

COCKERMOUTH TRAVEL Trees please!


In another episode of our going green programme (we try to plant trees every year to help me feel better about our customers carbon emissions) with the kind permission of Cockermouth Town Council, we have planted 5 mature trees in the Memorial Gardens to replace two that had been vandalised and three which were washed away in the 2015 floods. Many thanks to Councillor Alan Kennon for a very welcome extra pair of hands on planting day.


Poland!


When Hiccup finished Uni for the summer, we escaped to Krakow for a few days of history and culture. Our visit was filled with delicious food (try the area around Dolnych Mlynow for a trendy area of great restaurants where the locals outnumber the tourists), relaxed afternoons spent seeing stunning medieval architecture and eating lots of amazing creamy polish ice cream. One thing you can’t miss in Krakow is going to the Old Town and walking the Royal Route, which was the coronation path of Polish kings. The route starts in the north end of the Old Town at St. Florian’s Church, past the Main Square and St. Mary’s Basilica ending at Krakow’s crowning jewel Wawel Castle, which was for centuries, the residence of the kings of Poland. It’s a mixture of Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque architecture and well worth a visit. For some amazing views of the Castle, I would recommend going for a walk along the Vistula River at sunset.


We also took a fantastic Segway tour on the first day which is a fab way to get your bearings and see lots of places you can visit again at a slower pace.


Anyone visiting Krakow should also make time to visit Auschwitz-Birkenau, the site of one of the biggest mass murders in history. If you’ve watched Schindler’s List or read Primo Levi’s ‘If this is a man’ like me, you probably feel you know about the Holocaust and you know about Auschwitz. However, visiting the place where it all happened and walking through those gates was harrowing. It was the largest of the Nazi concentration camps, where over 1.1 million people were killed. You walk through the rows of huts, each of which had a different function and each more macabre than the last. There’s Hut 20 – the ‘hospital’ which was where Nazi doctors used prisoners as guinea pigs as they experimented with different ways of killing them more efficiently. There’s Hut 11, the prison within a prison where guards would come up with new and more horrific ways to torture the prisoners and the accommodation blocks where prisoners were housed in diseased overcrowded squalid conditions with no sanitation or running water. Not the normal sightseeing experience I would recommend but a must for visitors to Krakow.
