David v. Biandrata – April 23, 2023

David v. Biandrata
Unitarian Universalist Community of the Mountains
Rev. Janet Onnie

with Cheryl Morris, Worship Associate

Our tradition has a history of people resisting the dogma of their times. The story of Ferenc David and Georgio Biandrata rivals the best of courtroom dramas. The verdict resonates today with the struggle over the fate of the Rosia Montana gold mines in Romania – the same part of the world where David was martyred.
