John the Baptizer: A Man on a Vision Quest

in his book Radical Grace, Richard Rohr suggests that John the Baptizer was a wild man who went on a vision quest into the desert where he faced his aloneness, boredom, and naked self. He returned with a message, a clarity, a surety of heart that reveals a totally surrendered man.

In other words, John was a pilgrim, following the Pilgrim God.

Happy Advent.
