Any Swedes here? Question on the Church of Sweden

    I know that this isn't ELCA, but I figured it'd be more productive to ask here than the main Lutheran forum since the CoS is part of the LWF like the ELCA.

    So I'd consider myself in the "evangelical catholic" vein of Lutheranism, unfortunately around me it seems that Lutheranism has been heavily influenced by either pietism, crypto-calvinism, or both. I admire the Church of Sweden for its commitment to solid liturgy as well as its maintaining of the episcopate, but I fear when I hear how secular it is over in the Nordics. As someone considering pursuing ordination it seems like I'd be a better fit over there in Europe, plus as someone who is disabled I could really benefit from the economic structures over there. I guess I'm just afraid of joining a dead church

    If you find that you are more conservative than the State Church, you can take a look at the Mission Province of Sweden. It independent of the State Church and remain very traditioally evangelical Catholic, and Confessional:
