    Change and absence of change in historical narration: The Pentecostal Filadelfia Church in Stockholm telling its story2012In: Narration and Narratives as an Interdisciplinary Field of Study, 2012Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the paper is to discuss the ability of the narrative perspective to explain change, and especially absence of change, in a group’s way of telling its story. The empirical case is the Filadelfia Church in Stockholm. In the discussion, I will particularly emphasize the need to interpret the story in relation to context but also in relation to the group’s norms and goals.

    En framgångsrik främling: Filadelfiaförsamlingen i Stockholm - självbild i historieskrivning och verksamhet 1910-19802014Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the thesis is to examine how a group’s self-image is created, sustained and if necessary changed during the revolutionary 20th century. The study takes its point of  eparture in the idea that a self-image is essential for an organisation’s cohesion and collective identity. The study object is the Pentecostal Philadelphia church in, Sweden, established in 1910. In concrete terms, the thesis examines the self-image of the church as it is expressed in its narratives and activities from 1910 to 1980. The lf-image is analysed with the aid of the concepts ‘boundaries’ and ‘symbols’ and in relation to social and organisational change processes. In the main the empirical material  onsists of official documents such as jubilee publications, annual reports and the weekly newspaper Evangelii Härold.

    The main contribution of the thesis is an analysis of the church’s historical narrative. In this narrative the overall theme appears to be the small and faithful group that due to God’s influence and despite opposition became a major  nd significant church -- a success story. The theme also remains the same when the circumstances change. Narrative theory emphasises that the narrative has to be changeable order to be serviceable. However, my study shows that the narration, at least at the level highlighted in the thesis, is inert. The self-image seems to be difficult to change but is not necessarily static. The narrative is shown to include strategies for dealing with internal change processes and changes in society.

    Pingströrelsens rumslighet: Filadelfiaförsamlingens rumslighet i Stockholm 1907-19602011Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Studier om väckelserörelsens rumslighet i form av lokaler och byggnader verkar till övervägande del intressera sig för arkitekturhistoriska kartläggningar eller analyser där lokalernas utformning och dess inre utsmyckning är i fokus. Det är främst historiska och sociologiska men även teologiska orsaker som lyfts fram i dessa studier. Däremot saknas aktörernas perspektiv på de egna lokalerna.

         Pappret fokuserar därför hur aktörerna, de som använde lokalerna, beskrev sina egna lokaler och hur dessa berättades in i aktörens egen historia och därigenom blev en del av deras kollektiva identitet. Detta perspektiv är delvis inspirerat av den teoretiska diskussion om plats som förekommer inom kulturgeografin. Platser diskuteras där inte enbart som något statiskt och fysiskt utan som en pågående tillblivelse genom det fysiska rummets möte med mänskliga praktiker och de tankar, idéer och känslor som knyts till ett specifikt rum.

    The Pentecostal congregation’s place within the City: The Philadelphia Church in Stockholm2012Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Studies of the Christian movements’ spatiality in terms of premises and buildings seems mainly to be focus upon architectural history surveys or analyses of layout of rooms and the interior decoration. Historical and sociological as well as theological reasons are primarily highlighted in these studies. However, they seem to lack the agents’ perspectives on the premises.

    The paper focuses on how the agents used and described their own premises and other places (the city's physical dimension) and how they were made a part of the agents’ group identity. This perspective is partly inspired by the theoretical discussion about place that exists in Human geography. Within that discipline place is discussed as an on-­‐ going creation through conjunction of the physical space with human practices, ideas, strategies and emotions.

    The aim of the paper is to shed light on the above-­‐mentioned topic by studying the emerging Swedish Pentecostal revival and especially the Filadelfia Church’s in Stockholm premises and use of place during the early 1900s. The study is based on annual reports, the congregation’s weekly and jubilee publications.
