A young Tasmanian with a burning passion, Sam Clear walked 15,636 ks, from the jungles of South America to the icy winds of Siberia and on to Spain, asking people to pray for Christian unity. Catholic and white, Sam was often the target of abuse, but lessons of love and sacrifice along the way deepened his understanding of the way ahead, and compelled him to return to find lost friends. The record of his journey is now published in walk4one: paving a path to unity (2013).
