– First services of the March of the Universalist Church

WEST PARIS — Are we coming out of our hibernation? At several levels? There is a sense of hope in the air that being together in community serves to reinforce. All are welcome at the Première Eglise Universaliste de l’Ouest Parisien, on Sundays at 9am. For now, we continue to wear masks during worship, and continue to sing to the beautiful music of Tom Coolidge.

March 13, “Our Transcendental Roots” led by Reverend Fayre Stephenson. When Transcendentalism flourished in the 1800s in the Boston and Concord area, most Unitarians and Universalists were not Transcendentalists. And yet, the gift of Transcendentalists to our Unitarian Universalist faith is immense. Join us as we celebrate our transcendentalist ancestors.

March 20, “Our Souls Speak Spring” conducted by Reverend Fayre Stephenson. This Sunday is the day of the vernal equinox – the eve of the first day of spring and a time to renew our faith. In this service, we will consider the ancient traditions that surround this joyous time when the northern hemisphere begins to tilt towards the sun.

March 27, “Sheep vs. Doves: The Spiritual Significance of Doors and Windows in Christianity,” edited by Jennifer Wixson. We have all heard it said, “When God closes a door, he opens a window.” What situations in our life might call for the use of a door? A window? Jennifer explores the important difference between the two.
