I’m Seumas Macdonald, and in former times I’ve been a church minister, theological educator, aspiring academic, and language teacher. I like words and thinking about words, and here’s a place where I do thinking with words about God and life with Christ.

In my professional life, I teach Latin and Ancient Greek as living languages, and work on classics and patristics related projects. You can find out more about those things here: thepatrologist.com
