Religion as Survival Strategy

Michelle Brown with Worship Associate Anna Isaacs – Churches were language sanctuaries for Hungarians who came under Romanian authority in 1920. Even today, seminarians in Transylvania are charged with responsibility for the survival of the Hungarian people.

Michelle Brown, recently returned from a three-month stay in a Unitarian seminary, offers a look at the 21st century reality facing this child of the Reformation.
