Greetings to the new Bishop of Gothenburg

Bishop David has recently represented the Church of England at the consecration of Susanne Rappmann to be the next Bishop of Gothenburg. Bishop Susanne was consecrated in a solemn yet joyful service by the Archbishop of Uppsala, the Most Revd Antje Jackelén.

Bishop Suzanne has chosen as her motto, Vår Gud bär sår which means "Our God bears wounds". She says this motto reminds us of our calling to bear the wounds of others, and like Christ our God who bore the wounds of the cross but who rose again, to spread hope in the world.
