The Memoirs of Rev Alasdair MacDonald


The Rev Alasdair Macdonald – the beloved former minister of this Congregation passed away to his eternal rest on Saturday evening 8th September 2007. Like Enoch his passing into glory was sudden as when “Enoch walked with God, then he was no more, because God took him away” (Gen 5:24).

Alasdair’s passing left a void in many of our lives as we remember him as a beloved pastor and friend of many people here in Ness. Alasdair was a Niseach and proud of it. Ness and its people and especially the congregation of Cross Ness were dear above everything else to him. Shortly after his death these few pages of memoirs were found in his study. We reprint them here in memory of a dearly beloved pastor and man of God.
