Storyline

Brian suffers a crisis of faith when the Rev. Johnson is suddenly stricken with progressive blindness at Christmas time and Dr. Mike can't help him. The townspeople are saddened by the Rev. Johnson's affliction, but Brian sees the malady as God's way of punishing the clergyman. The Reverend Johnson's faith is also tested and he decides not to lead the Christmas Eve service. Meanwhile, Dr. Mike consults with Cloud Dancing about the situation, and it's he who finds the words for Dr. Mike to explain to Brian and the Rev. Johnson that they should not consider the blindness a punishment from God, but instead a message that the preacher is to take a new path
