Multi-faith Program during Intercession

Hungarian goulash was the featured entre at the dinner that preceded the presentation by Lehel Molnar, archivist for the Unitarian church in Transylvania. While living and working in Romania, Reverend Molnar is Hungarian and so the meal was designed to honor his country and please his palate.   The Rev. Lehel Molnar who has served for more than 20 years as Archivist for the Hungarian Unitarian Church in Kolozsvar, Romania, was the guest presenter at a BPMH Multi-faith Program on Wednesday night, January 23.  Rev. Molnar is spending a year at Starr King School for the Ministry as this year’s Balazs Scholar. In his presentation, he described the persecution that Unitarians endured during the Counter-reformation and under 20th century Communism. He described the digitization of the historic Unitarian documents that is now taking place under his direction and he summarized the key features of the Unitarian faith tradition.  

Epiphany Party on Jan 5

The Berkeley Presbyterian Missions Homes community gathered on January 5 to culminate the holiday season with an Epiphany party that included a sumptuous pot luck dinner, a beautiful service of lessons and carols featuring the Epiphany story, the “gift game” and the cutting and serving of a tres leche cake, complete with the baby (3) Jesus baked into the batter. It was a marvelous party for adults and children alike.
