Date(s) - 20/01/2019
10:30 am - 12:00 pm

La Maison Verte (M° Jules Joffrin)


Our non-creedal UU tradition gives us so much flexibility in how we approach our spiritual lives. This freedom also perhaps brings more responsibility: it’s up to us to understand our path and how to live it. How can we best support our intentions and our growth?

A spiritual practice! If this immediately suggests toil and discipline, it need not: a self-chosen practice can be our way to tend to our growth, a thread that runs through our lives, a witness to our joys and concerns, a place of surprise and insight and refuge.

Dave Frey is our lay leader today; he’s been a member of UUFP for about thirteen years, and a practicing Buddhist for eight.

We meet for worship at La Maison Verte at 127-129 rue Marcadet, 75018.

Music for gathering starts at 10:20am and the service starts at 10:30am.


Katherine Blondel will lead the children’s lesson. This year we will explore together through a curriculum “Windows and Mirrors”. It’s a program that nurtures children’s ability to identify their own experiences and perspectives and to seek out, care about, and respect those of others. The sessions unpack topics that lend themselves to diverse experiences and perspectives—for example, faith heritage, public service, anti-racism and prayer. The program teaches that there are always multiple viewpoints and everyone’s viewpoint matters.

Katherine Blondel is the coordinator of Children’s RE. You can reach her at katherine.blondel@orange.fr with questions or to let her know your children will be at the upcoming service (that’s always helpful).

For younger children who are not yet ready for a group lesson and independent, focused activity, please consider taking your young child to the babysitter before or during the service, or accompanying your child during RE so as to assist him or her.
