Glad Midsommar - Happy Midsummer from the Swedish American Children's Choir in St. Charles, IL and our family. Enjoy this very special day!
I hope it is ok to post this here. Please erase if not. Many thousands of people moved to Minnesota from Älvdalen in Seden. In Älvdalen we have a seperat language that the European Council has rekognised as a language finaly. I and a friend of mine started a course on-line on facebook to teach Elfdalian/Älvdalska. You can find it as a facebookgroup named "Älvdalska bytes mot armhävningar." The course is free and contains videolessons for one minut every weekday. A ittle more info: I teach Elfdalian on facebook! In Älvdalen, in the region Dalarna, mid-Sweden there is a small language, not possible to understand for a Swedish speaking person. The language origins from old Germanic and old norse and has preserved several grammatic features from the old languages. Such as nasal vowals, ð (pronounced as th in English word father), w as in the English word water and a grammar similar to the german grammar. Aprox 3 000 people are speaking it. You can read more about Älvdalska/ Elfdalian on Wikipedia and Youtube. I have started a course in Elfdalian/ Älvdalska (in Swedish) on facebook. The name of the group is “Älvdalska bytes mot armhävningar) Today there are 1 442 pupils, but everyone interested are welcome to join. The lessons are translated to English too, since many of them does not speak Swedish. The course is totaly free, does not cost anything. We are working totally voluntary, just to save our threatened language. Short lessons – only one minut video- plus explaining text every weekday and a lot of bonusmaterial. Please join by pressing “Gå med” once you have found the group. And pleas spread “the gospel” to friends. Björn Rehnström Älvdalen Email: [email protected] 88
Intervju med Erik Eklund Vikingen från Norrland som blev Global entreprenör i San Francisco Intervju av Karl Mettinger Erik Eklund har varit en klippa i Svenska Kyrkan som vår Vice President i nära 20 år. Vi ställde några frågor till honom: 1. Hur kom det sig att blev engagerad så så fort du flyttade hit? Var och när väcktes ditt djupa intresse och engagemang för Svenska Kyrkan? Jag blev medlem i Svenska kyrkan när jag föddes. När vi flyttade till Kanada blev vi också medlemmar i Svenska Kyrkan i Toronto. Min mor är finnska och jag konfirmerades i den Finska Lutherska Kyrkan i Toronto där mina morföräldrar var medlemmar. 2. Berätta om din unika uppväxt och studier internationellt. Jag fortsatte studierna i Paris och blev styrelseledamot för svenska studenthemmet där jag bodde medan jag gick min Masters i konstruktionsteknik och ingeniörsvetenskap. Jag var också där en aktiv medlem i den anrika Svenska Kyrkan, som grundades under Ludvig XIVs tid. Det blev genast naturligt för mig att fortsätta mitt engagemang när jag flyttade till SF. 3. Med Masters i engineering från Paris och MBA från Harvard hamnade du ju först i en konsultfirma knuten till Bain Capital och sedan engagerad i ett pärlband av framgångsrika startup-företag i Sverige och USA. Berätta om ditt nya projekt. Mitt nya "uppstartsföretag" har globala potentialer. Firman går bra. Vi är pionjärer i tracking av containers med utnyttjande av kinetisk energi i varje container som flyttar världen runt. Danska och koreanska rederi inom containerfrakt är bland de största i världen. Om man kopplar ihop alla världens 29 miljoner containers blir det som ett lemmeltåg som sträcker sig runt jordklotet åtta gånger! 4. Hur ser du på nuläget och framtiden för Svenska Kyrkan i San Francisco? Vad är största behovet? Kyrkan behövs nu mer än någonsin. Vi har hållit kontakt med våra medlemmar på telefon och via digitala gudstjänster på youtube. Vår nye präst Joakim Schröder flyttar hit så fort hans visum och inresetillstånd blir klart efter årsskiftet. Vi har redan gudstjänster varje månad med kyrkoherde Hans Bratt Hernberg från L.A och Brandon Peck som just prästvigts i Berkeley där han nyligen fick sin examen. 5. Du är ju vår eminente ambassadör för Swedish American Chamber of Commerce och Young Scandinavian Club och andra organisationer i Bay Area. Vad kan vi göra mer för att samverka och nå ut? Jag tror på samarbete med organisationer som SWEA, Svenska Handelskammaren och Svenska Konsulatet etc. Vi måste bli kända och och ha ett utbud som möter behoven för unga barnfamiljer som flyttar hit.
