Jag vill också gratulera både Svenska kyrkan och Antje Jackelén. Låt oss nu sluta upp i bön kring henne.
Did we just get the first Swedish Lutheran Archbishop electus not being born in Sweden?
I am just asking. I don’t know the answer. The Church Magazine is reporting that Antjé Jackelen has been elected the new archbishop of Church of Sweden. Could it be that Antjé is the first Archbishop in Church of Sweden, who is not born in Sweden. At least since the reformation. Is it significant? Maybe it is an opening in a situation which I often find strange. Church of Sweden. Why? There are many churches in Sweden. What makes our church so Swedish? Is it at all preferable? Especially when the society at large becomes more and more multicultural – which I like!
I also want to congratulate Church of Sweden and Antje. Let us unite in prayer around her!
