UUFP (Paris fellowship) service: Sheltering on the Shore
Sunday 26 April at 10.30am

The coronavirus pandemic has brought a lot of responses from writers and TV analysts. These range from  new hobbies you can start without leaving home to predictions about how long it will be until everything is ‘back to normal.’ But what if things will never get back to normal again?

Let’s think instead about the meaning of the pandemic, and what new directions for the world may be carried by it. Are there things about discovering ourselves as vulnerable that may bring healing instead of harm?

This will be UUFP’s first-ever online service! Our minister, the Rev. Art Lester will be with us online from Croydon, England. Our pianist, Judith Kohler will play wonderful music. The hymns will be recorded and we can all sing along from home! There will be a Story for all Ages and Joys and Concerns. We hope you will all be there for our first online service. We are confined in our homes, but we will be together in spirit!

Art Lester left his native USA forty years ago. After working at village level in Botswana, Kenya and the Dominican Republic for European agencies, he settled in the UK, where he trained as a Unitarian minister. He led churches in London, the Southeast of Britain and Dublin before being appointed at Croydon Unitarians, where he has been for 12 years. During the last 21 years, he has been a frequent visiting minister at UUFP. He thinks of the Paris Fellowship almost as a second congregation.

He is the author of seven books, including the award-winning Seeing with Your Ears. The most recent is The Hunch, due for publication in September. A list is available on Amazon.com. When he is not at his small cottage in a Spanish mountain village, he lives in Croydon with his wife, Gilly Fraser, a playwright and TV script writer.
