Abstract [en]

In a global perspective, Sweden is often regarded and described as one of the most secularised countries in the world. Compared to countries in the south of Europe, Latin America or the US, religion is seen as much less influential in society and in the everyday lives of the individuals. Even though this view incertain respects can be contested, Protestantism and the Church of Sweden are for instance still significant forces in the Swedish society, these views of Sweden as secularised, have consequences for the daily lives of young people who are practising a religion. Religion has for example not a very prominent place in the mainstream youth culture, and pronounced religious piety among youth is in the general discourse described as problematic rather than as commendable. So what is it like to be a practising Christian in a society and an environment where this is regarded as unusual at best and strange at worst? How are the religious rights of young people affected by the expectations they meet from parents and friends, but also from the school and the congregation they are a part of? How do they navigate between these different environments in their everyday lives? This presentation will be based on a qualitative research project involving young people who are active in one of the independent evangelical churches in Sweden: The mission covenant church. Their experiences of and views on being a practising young Christian in contemporary Sweden will be discussed in relation to concepts such as religious rights, youth culture, and fundamental values.
