“Hardly any other choice of occupation affects close family members, families and friends as much as that of seamen. Going to sea always means that family, friends and relatives are left behind at home.”
This is how Anders Radix, seamen’s priest in Göteborg, starts an open letter in which he seeks contact with families of seamen. His vision is to develop the seamen’s church into a natural meeting place, not only for seamen but also for their close ones.
Anders Radix asks representatives of the industry and close family members of seamen to contact him to develop these ideas.
