Black-on-white About SEX
On May 6-8, 2011 more than 500 young people gathered for this year’s FÜGGŐleges (Vertical) youth conference in Cluj (Romania). A promo (http://www.fuggoleges.ro/index.php/site/index/56) was produced by young people from the region.The majority of the participants were of 17-19 of age and gathered especially from Romania, but we had guests from Hungary, Ukraine and Germany, too.
The main speaker Rev. Jozsef Csomos jr. from Hungary spoke about ‘Sex is good’ and ‘Destroying Christian myths’. There were also 15 minutes presentations about topics related to sex. Besides lectures and group discussions participants could enjoy themselves during sport, entertaining and leisure time activities (including free hug in the city and flash mob in one of the local malls). Young couple were also interviewed and gave their testimony.
Before the end of the conference participants joined the local Sunday morning service. This was very special for the local congregation, too, because of the youthful decorations in the church and the hot topic of sexuality addressed from the pulpit.
