Church Twinning

French Conversation Sessions

 

Over the weekedn of 8/9th of September, we played host to 6 members of our partner congregation from Pentemont-Luxembourg Church in Paris. On a lovely September day, they spent some time in St.Columba's, visited the Holy Rude, had lunch at Herman's, visited the Castle and the Wallace Monument and danced away the evening at an informal Family Ceilidh in the church hall. On Sunday they joined us for morning worship and a soup and sandwich lunch before heading back to Paris on the early evening flight. A short "flying" visit, but a great success for all its brevity.

There is every possibility of future "twinning" visits to and from Paris, further details of which will appear in The Link.

Just to get you in the mood why not take a look at the Lord's Prayer “Notre Père” en français.

Notre Père, qui es aux cieux,
Que ton nom soit sanctifié
Que ton règne vienne,
Que ta volonté soit faite sur la terre comme au ciel.

Donne-nous aujourd’hui notre pain de ce jour.

Pardonne-nous nos offences
Comme nous pardonnons aussi à ceux qui nous ont offensés.

Et ne nous soumets pas à la tentation,
Mais délivre-nous du mal,
Car c’est à toi qu’appartiennent le règne,
La puissance et la gloire, aux siècles des siècles.

Amen.
