Chairman Stan Royden:
REPORT FROM THE CHAIRMAN OF GANC (Gustaf Adolf Nordic Congregation, in case you were wondering)
After a refreshing break in August, it’s full steam ahead once more. We have already had our harvest festival, a wedding blessing, a confirmation and a baptism and by the time you read this, we will have visited our friends at the German Church for the Reformation service. Now we look forward to Lucia, which will be celebrated in traditional fashion and before you know it, Christmas will be over and we will be celebrating “julgransplundring” in January with the help, once again, of Kristina from the Swedish Church in London.
One final point: Michael Persson is leaving the Swedish Church in London after nearly 10 years. He has been a good friend to us and we will miss him. We wish him well in his new post in Stockholm and hope that he and Camilla will have occasion to visit us again sometime. Don’t forget that you can “donate” flowers for the altar in memory of a loved one; Mette will make sure that they will look lovely in the sanctuary.
