Gender MALE
Industry Religion
Occupation pappi // Lutheran pastor
Location Helsinki, Finland
Introduction Hello! My name is Petri Tikka. I'm a Finn, and a Lutheran pastor. I write poems, theological things, and whatever comes to mind. I also translate hymns and songs, and even compose them. Singing is one of my main hobbies. I have a love for languages. Tolkien's legendarium is close to my heart, especially his invented languages. I am currently studying to be a doctor of theology - my research concerns the salvation of everybody who ever lived (this hope is certain, thanks to the cross of Christ). /// Terve! Nimeni on Petri Tikka. Olen pappi. Kirjoitan runoja, teologisia juttuja ja mitä mieleen sitten tuleekin. Käännän myös virsiä ja lauluja, jopa säveltelen. Laulaminen kuuluu pääharrastuksiini. Rakastan kieliä. Tolkienin legendarium ja eritoten hänen keksimänsä kielet ovat lähellä sydäntäni. Tällä hetkellä olen teologian jatko-opiskelija, valmistelen väitöskirjaa kaikkien koskaan eläneiden pelastumisesta (se on varma toivo, kiitos Kristuksen ristin).
