The Priest

The Priest

This is Carl Henrik Widlund. A priest from the Österhaninge Parish. I met him at the Easy Rider Festival in Handen on Saturday where he was looking at all the bikes. He also gave me a copy of a bible with a difference. The Engine Bible. It's the New Testament plus a number of interviews with religious race drivers and what have you. He was also at last weeks car meet and handed out many copies of the same book. I asked if he knew Sara the Priestess, which he told me that he did.

So, you have found a handsome priest to match the lovely priestess.

You have good-looking religious folk over there!

He's a very cool looking young priest, I like it, keep in touch with real young people, has to be good! Well captured Steffe.

I wonder how successful he is at handing out those bibles at car or bike rallies.

EXCELLENT!

Gosh, he looks like a rocker dude... with that vest. Funny priest, pretty cool too... I bet his congregation likes him.

Wonderful picture, very surrealistic. With more priests like this, religion would become more attractive!

If you are trying to reach the people, you have to go where the people are, and speak their language.

interesting
but he really is not from some kind of horror movie?

Steffe said...

Thanks people.

Ha ha, I don't think so Cat, but you never know...


He told me that he gave away quite a few bibles at the car meet the previous weekend.

I agree with Dave, it is not enough to sit in church and wonder where the people are. Here in Leeds this last week there has been a story in the press about a young woman pastor who ministers to the young night time crowd. I hope to catch up with her and get a photo for the Leeds in Yorkshire daily photo. Paul
