Talk about Faith

People from more than 50 different countries visit our Holy Communion service – every continent is represented! Christians from a variety of backgrounds meet and worship together. There must be a lot of stories to be told! That was the idea behind “Meeting without borders”. One of the things that drive me as a person is curiosity. I’m always intrigued by others and want to know more about them. So when I was offered the job as minister for the English-speaking work in the Cathedral I jumped at the opportunity. Here was a chance to get to know and talk to people from all over the world. I haven’t been disappointed. One of my absolute favourite moments of the week is fellowship after the Holy Communion Service when I get the chance to sit down and talk to people. I feel very privileged, because during my two years as an English-speaking minister I have met fantastic people and listened to some truly amazing life stories. Now I want to give the rest of you the same opportunity. Meeting without borders can be seen as an extension of fellowship on Sundays. We meet, sit down and drink tea or coffee and get to know each other. The only difference is that sharing one’s experience and life story as a Christian is more pronounced. The first time we meet I think it would be a good idea to divide us into groups of 4-5 persons and get to know each other. Where are we from? Why are we in Sweden? How is it to be a Christian in our home country? How is it to be a Christian in Sweden? It is my hope that there are others out there who are just as curious as I am. If so I look forward to seeing you next Wednesday (10/10) at 7.15 pm at Domkyrkoforum.
