Kent Wisti

was @sweden 2014-08-18 to 2014-08-25

My name is Kent Wisti and I am a minister in the Church of Sweden, artist, and also a political cartoonist. I will handle the @swedenaccount this week.

I work in a parish in Malmö, the south Sweden but I live in Lund. Thera are about 20 km between the cities.

I was born and raised in Älmhult where the mothership of IKEA is.

A very small town but the origin of IKEA and one can probably say that everything in Älmhult in one way or another are linked to IKEA. It was probably just me and a handful of other children in the whole school when I was a child who had at least one parent who did not at IKEA.

In addition Älmhult, Malmö and Lund, I have lived in Växjö and Gothenburg. Gothenburg is my absolute favorite city in Sweden.

Some wonder how it works to have three such different roles as minister, cartoonist and artist. I rather see difficulties to keep them apart. A known Swedish theologian, Per-Erik Persson expressed that the ministers's task is to help people with the strength to live and the dare to die. I think so as well. I also believe that it is exactly the same task as the artists, and the two roles coincide thereby helping humans to manage to live and dare to die. Perhaps the clergy is the ultimate artistic discipline. I also see the humor and comedy as something that is very close and sometimes coincides with spirituality and faith. Being able to look oneself and the world through play.

I'll probably be tweeting something about the religious life in Sweden, the soul of Sweden and translate some of my satire cartoons and share with you. Perhaps a few words on what it means to be human.

Sometimes I get bored. I usually take down Twitter an destroy it completely. Or manufacture news. We'll see what happens.

One thing — my english is really lousy. That will be fun for all of us.

Today 19 years ago a swedish boy was killed by nazis. We will never forget you, John Hron. We will never stop our resistance.

I was born and raised i Älmhult, the mothership of IKEA. Did you know that it is just two men who makes all the furnitures? Amazing men!

RT">@Ebeeto:">@sweden Please, for the love of everything, at least spare the followers what the actual event of "kafferep" is.

@sweden Aug. 18, 2014, 9:43 a.m.">@nkoan Adult cats are actually common in the fika of Lappland in the north of sweden.

@sweden Aug. 18, 2014, 9:41 a.m.

- Hey, Bjorn, you wanna go for a fika? - Yes, Benny, I bring the kittens! Just an example.

@sweden Aug. 18, 2014, 9:40 a.m.

- That is what they WANT you to belive. What "fika" really means is att traditional slaughter of kittens. 2-3 kittens each fika.

@sweden Aug. 18, 2014, 9:38 a.m.

First of all- let's make some things clear. The word "fika". Former curators told you that fika is coffee n cinemon rolls. Well, follow me-

@sweden Aug. 18, 2014, 9:36 a.m.

Ok, I'm on. Let's rock n' roll.
