The absolutely most committed group, when it comes to respecting people's preference of Finnish vs
Swedish must be the Laestadian Christians. I tagged along with a friend to a few services not long ago, and
everything was interpreted in real time, to Finnish.


This reminds me of my uncle's bilingual funeral service. Nothing was interpeted. The minister said maybe two
sentences in Swedish, then equally many in Finnish then again Swedish..the whole service through. It was
kind of weird but understandable solution because interpreting everything would have been boring and time
consuming and in fact unnecessary. The minister came from my uncle's own Swedish parish
(seurakunta/församling).
