10:30 am - 12:00 pm

La Maison Verte (M° Jules Joffrin)



Wisdom is an illusive thing. Sometimes it can lie undetected for a whole lifetime right under your nose. At others, it can be found in places you might never suspect: scrawled graffiti in a Greyhound Bus Station, say, in a vague paragraph of newspaper astrology, or even on a bumper sticker. We take a look at how to recognise it when it does appear, and how to apply it in daily life.

The music at this service will be provided by jazz pianist Larry McDonough and flautist Carol Bergquist, who last played for us in December 2013.

We meet for worship at La Maison Verte at 127-129 rue Marcadet, 75018.
Music for gathering starts at 10:20 am and the service starts at 10:30 am.

Reminder: UUFP is phasing out plastic cups at coffee hour after the service. We encourage everyone to bring re-useable mugs or cups to Sunday services.


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.


This year’s Religious exploration curriculum is called “Building Bridges”. We will explore different religions around the world. Building Bridges is a world religions program to deepen youth’s understanding of the dynamic, fascinating, and varied world in which they live. It seeks to broaden their knowledge of humanity and embolden their spiritual search.

A babysitter will be available for children who don’t want to stay in the service or participate in the lesson.

Katherine Blondel is the coordinator of Children’s RE. You can reach her at katherine.blondel@orange.fr with questions.
