missionary 'de-converted'

This is not new, but it was passed along again today and I found myself touched-to-tears once more by the tale of a fellow who set out to infuse a Brazilian tribe with Christianity only to be de-converted, so to speak, himself. Anyone daring enough to enter the realm of spiritual practice will know the kind of courage and uncertainty this man expresses so openly. His template fits any spiritual persuasion that is serious. In his case, Jesus in the desert had nothing on this guy for my money. The belief that promises to uplift must invariably be confronted as that which will send anyone to hell.
