Date(s) - 21/11/2021
10:30 am - 12:00 pm

La Maison Verte (M° Jules Joffrin)


UUFP (Paris fellowship) service
Sunday 21 Nov at 10.30 am

Lay-led by Christopher Buja and Elaine McCarthy

The service title is a paraphrasing of Frederick Douglass’ “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?”  This worship service will explore what the U.S. holiday of Thanksgiving can mean to an American or a Canadian living in Paris, a native of France or a native of another country, and in the context of the Unitarian Universalist faith.  Whether or not Thanksgiving is part of your family practices, all are invited to reflect on the traditions they hold dear: how they came to be, what values they remind us of, and how they evolve as we carry on those traditions. Both children and adults will be encouraged to participate
