October 10, 2021 Pete Rollins is a phenomenal storyteller and theologian. The tells the story of a Buddhist parable where a young woman loses her beautiful baby girl. In this woman’s immense grief, she wraps the child’s body in linen, then she wraps the child’s body to her own. She goes in search of someone, anyone, who can resuscitate her child. She goes to faith healers and witch doctors. She talks to the tribal elders, but no one can help. Finally one of the elders says “it is rumored that high up in the mountains, away from everyone, there is a holy man that is so close to the divine, that he can even raise the dead.
