Rev. Beth Banks, Worship Leader; Guest: Rev. Karoly Vass, Balázs Scholar
Child Naming Ceremony: Alice Emily Marie Justice, daughter of Laura Whitsett.
From time to time we must ask ourselves on what type of ground
we stand: sand or rock? How and why are we standing there? Who is standing with us? In this sermon we try to answer those questions reflecting on the partner church movement, the importance of Transylvanian Unitarians and American Unitarian Universalists standing arm in arm looking towards the horizon.
Károly Vass finished his initial theological studies in 2010, and has been serving as assistant minister in his home congregation in Sepsiszentgyörgy while completing a master’s degree in theology. Before committing to ministry, he studied economics at Babes Bolyai University. He writes, “I am particularly interested in social ethics, but also in how Unitarian Universalist churches are organized, how religion is reflected in your daily lives, and how you welcome newcomers and share your values with them.”
Rev. Vass is joined this year by his wife Gyöngyi–a former
teacher in the Unitarian kindergarten in Kolozsvár who runs
the Sunday School program in Sepsiszentgyörgy–and their
two small children.
