This is Sara’s Song, it’s a story about my mom Sara Shewangizaw. But in truth, Sara’s song is the soundtrack of the three major faiths, Judaism, Christianity and Islam. All three faiths intertwined, it was the strife between Sara and Hagar that created division and it was that division that led to countless wars and conflicts. Through this video, I share how songbirds that are caged can find freedom through the revelation of love.
Before going live to do this broadcast dedicated to my mother Sara Shewangizaw, I opened up the Bible to see where chance would land me. As edel (luck) would have it, I landed on this chapter and verses:
“In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness. And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord of hosts, that I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land, and they shall no more be remembered: and also I will cause the prophets and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land. And it shall come to pass, that when any shall yet prophesy, then his father and his mother that begat him shall say unto him, Thou shalt not live; for thou speakest lies in the name of the Lord: and his father and his mother that begat him shall thrust him through when he prophesieth.
And it shall come to pass in that day, that the prophets shall be ashamed every one of his vision when he hath prophesied; neither shall they wear a rough garment to deceive: But he shall say, I am no prophet, I am an husbandman; for man taught me to keep cattle from my youth. And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends. Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the Lord of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones. And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the Lord, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God.” ~ Zechariah 13
Nothing is an accident, the broader story is now being written, until then, enjoy this broadcast, there are gems in it if you seek it.
