In the harsh landscape of the Faroe Islands, you may see a tiny speck traversing its landscape donning a pair of Merrell Bare Access XTR trail runners. That speck, high on the ridgeline, is pastor Sverri Steinholm, who serves as a preacher to the people of his parish and its hospital. The Running Pastor, from Camp4 Collective and Merrell, features Steinholm's reflections on why he continues to put himself in a place of suffering in nature.
