"Saint Columbia, a sixteenth-century Irish missionary, was sent to evangelize northern Scotland. The adventure was hazardous because of the Picts who occupied the area. Columbia and twelve men sailed to the nearby Island of Iona. The first thing that they did was to burn their boat. They were afraid to trust themselves with a seaworthy craft which might tempt them to leave. Thus, a boatload of men brought Christ to Scotland." (G. Curtis Jones. 1,000 Illustrations For Preaching And Teaching. Nashville: Broadman Press, 1986, p. 184). Much like John Wesley, who "saw the world as his parish", they saw Scotland as their mission.
