A man is sought out by the local citizens for his apparent ability to cure illnesses with unconventional suggestions, like stripping naked, pressing your face against a rock, licking it 13 times, and redressing. (hahah). While he seems to be able to cure those who ask, he does not take his apparent ability seriously but patronizes the community to their benefit. He cannot though seem to help his wife who is confined to a wheelchair. The locals suggest it is just a matter of faith in his powers, but if he does not believe in them himself…

I liked the episode. I want to say it was sappy but the moral of the story was delivered in such a sweet way, that using "sappy" would be an insult. I just wish the tape was running at regular speed. Things like that can be fixed these days but, all to often, I hear the slllooowww delivery of an episode. It really does take away from the show.

I love all of Eslpeth Eric's stories!

A good listen with some redemption where we didn't know redemption was needed until near the end. I, too, didn't like that they slowed down EG to stretch out the episode, but they do it on occasion.
