“Gurli was active in the Danish Bible Society for many years, and served as President of the UBS General Committee from 1981-1984 (equivalent to today’s Global Council),” notes Terje Hartberg from United Bible Societies. “She was an unusually good communicator, especially to the young, and a highly respected counsellor and teacher. It is said that after the Anglican Archbishop Donald Coggan, who then was UBS President, met Gurli, he become convinced that ordination of women was the right thing to do.”
