Commitment for Community Can’t Be Quarantined, Nor Infected –
Rev. Csongor Benedek, introduced by Michelle Poirier Brown, with worship associate David Vest
As a Unitarian minister of a small-town congregation in Transylvania, Rev. Benedek reflects on the importance of church connections – and the “accumulated need” to get back to our beloved communities again after the pandemic.
Rev. Benedek writes: “I am a Unitarian minister in Transylvania, Romania. I have been serving all together for three and a half years as a Unitarian minister in four small churches (different congregations). After graduating high school I studied English for one year and geography and tourism for five years (as a first degree) and then I immediately turned to Theology (my father being a Unitarian minister as well) and studied for six years in the Institute of the Protestant Seminary in Kolozsvár/Cluj-Napoca, Transylvania, Romania.
“I visited different UU congregations in the U.S., I also preached in St. Paul, Minn., once. I feel really connected to Unitarian Universalists and their 7 principles. I am delighted to be in touch with Canadian UU’s through my great friend Michelle Poirier Brown.”
