Obituary for Former President Rev. Dr. Benjamin Griffin

Posted by Dr. Lewis P. Zeidner on Dec 18, 2017 9:11:48 AM

The Rev. Dr. Ben Griffin was United’s president for about 8 years in the late 80s and early 90s.  He died earlier this month and we extend our prayers to his family and loved ones.  Although many of us never knew him in person, his legacy of a commitment to social justice and interfaith engagement remain the hallmarks of United’s focus some 23 years later.  Organizations like United are built upon the wisdom, commitment and love of leaders like Rev. Dr. Griffin.

15 years ago, I wasn’t dressed in a Halloween costume. My German host family found the idea of Halloween preposterous, particularly as it fell on Reformation Day. So instead of going door to door asking for candy from neighbors, I spent the evening attending a quiet, somber service at our small German town’s Lutheran church.
