Ulf and Birgitta Ekman made a visit to Irondale, Alabama from their homeland in Sweden, to express their happiness and support of the June 8 launch of a Nordic branch of EWTN as a web channel at www.ewtn.se.
They share with EWTN‘s President and Bookmark host Doug Keck on what led them to leave a 30-year Evangelical, Charismatic ministry, and Ulf‘s position as pastor of the large Protestant church he founded, for the Catholic Church. “We grew to feel that in our serving of the Lord, that there was something missing,” Ulf explains. “We studied the tenets of Catholicism seriously, over a period of many years,” adds Birgitta. The Great Discovery : Our Journey to the Catholic Church, tells of their conversion, from both Birgitta and from Ulf‘s side. A fascinating book, and a fascinating interview.
