Document Keynote speech at Being “Holy common”, Oslo, Norway, October 2018
Some 500 youth workers and leaders from churches all over Norway gathered outside Oslo in October, for a youth and faith conference to learn and to share knowledge and visions on Christian youth work. WCC general secretary Rev. Dr Olav Fykse Tveit was one of the keynote speakers elaborating on that subject. He sees “holy” and “common” as two very different things which at the same time are closely related.
