Nun leads churches

For the first time, a Roman Catholic was elected to lead the Christian Council of Norway.

Else-Britt Nilsen, 64, a Dominican nun, succeeds two Methodists, a Baptist and a Lutheran, all male, in a country where 78 percent are Lutheran.

Nilsen told the Vaart Land newspaper that "Christian unity is growing in Norway."
