John MacDonald, Head of Mission, Methodist Mission Northern  

Per Mare Per Terras. By sea, by land. The salty sea is in my blood, and connectedness to the land in my bones. The ancient MacDhòmhnaill motto still says it for me. My family, close and extended, my community close and extended, I find my soul enriched by so many friends.

We journey together enjoying a family-ness beyond bloodlines, each intimate and characterized by unique realities. He tangata, he tangata, he tangata, nothing more and nothing less. The privilege has been mine to enjoy great people and places for lots of years.
