(Activities of the Association of Evangelical youth – Unity of Samuel Ormis – in Revúca as Eminent Factor for Strengthening Religious and Ethnical Identity of Local Adolescents (II. Period 1932 – 1936)) pdf

Abstract: The meetings of the Association of Evangelical Youth – Unity of Samuel Ormis – in Revúca, initiated by the pastor Juraj Raab – Kell, were characterized by a solid structure: prayer – lecture – poem – religious song, often supplemented by a tea, literary or religious discussiona, trip or theater performance. Lectures on the apostles, the forerunners of the Reformation, and the life of Martin Luther strengthened confessional awareness. There was a presentation of other personalities of the Protestant faith, or helpful to this faith. Membership also carried out collections (for example, for an evangelical orphanage in Liptovský Mikuláš, for the purchase of harmonium …). It also established contacts with other „units“ in the territory of Gemer (Budikovany, Mokrá Lúka, Ratková …) and Novohrad (Lučenec). It disappeared after an unspecified disagreement between the members and the clergy.
