Paris Lessons: Famous UUs in the City of Light

led by Carrie Landfried
Associate Professor of French & Francophone studies at Franklin & Marshall College, Lancaster, PA.

What did Thomas Jefferson, Ralph Waldo Emerson, e.e. cummings and others learn during their stays in Paris? How can those lessons apply to us? Drawing from their experiences and our own, we will reflect what living in the French capital teaches us.


UUFP will be phasing out plastic cups at coffee hour after the service. We encourage everyone to bring re-useable mugs or cups.


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.frwith 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.
