“Bruce Cockburn, Pacing the Cage”
An intimate look at Bruce Cockburn, his life, his music, and his spirituality

“If I try to understand what it means to be a Christian, I look at the two instructions that were given in the Bible that are paramount, and those are to love God with all your heart and mind, and to love your neighbour as yourself. That’s it.”

-Bruce Cockburn
