Presentation of Church of Sweden, Växjö diocese

The Swedish Lutheran Church separated from the Swedish State in 2000, but still holds a strong position in the society. Växjö diocese has maintained a high number of Church members, although the secularization also has madeits impact in our Diocese. In year 2009 the Swedish church voted for same-sex marriages. However, this and other controversial questions, like the ordination of female pastors in the 1950’s, are still topics that causes division between conservative and moderate parts of our church.

We find it interesting to take part in the consultation, not only because it is a way to get a deeper understanding for the actual questions for our partners in Pommerania, but also to learn from what the fusion of the church has meant to the different church circuits and the mission of the church as a whole. Many of the topics within the partner consultations are highly international and therefore very interesting to take part of.
