About me:
My name is Yngve Kalin, a Swedish priest living in Hyssna near to Gothenburg in the South West of Sweden. I am the Chairman of the  Church Coalition for the Bible and Confession in the Church of Sweden. a national organization that was formed in 1958 by Bishop Bo Giertz and was the Editor in Charge of Svensk Pastoraltidskrift between 2005 and 2009, a by-weekly High Church journal containing ecclesiopolitical comments, Bible analysis for sermons and other information relating to the Church of Sweden.

After the great Tsunami of 2004 in Thailand, I was one of the priests who was sent there to assist the many Swedish tourists who were among the victims, and served as a coordinator for the work of the Church of Sweden in the region in the second week after the catastrophe.
After my ordination in Växjö 1973, up to 1980 I served the congregation in Femsjö.
I moved to Swaziland in Southern Africa and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Southern Africa and worked there from 1981 to 1990. I have written two books about my African experiences.
From 1990 to 2002, I lived in Mjöbäck, where I served as a Parish pastor and was elected the Chairman of the Technical Service Committee of the local Council in Svenljunga. Between 1998 and 2006, I was a lay judge at the Magistrates Court in Borås.
From 1996 to 2001, I was a member of the Church Assembly (General Synod) of the Church of Sweden and from 1981 to 1998 and was a member of the Board of Church of Sweden Mission. For a part of this period I was also vice chairman of the Church of Sweden's administrative committee, as well as a member of several of the Boards of the Church's companies.
