Today I had a meeting about the March 15 Bloom Where You're Planted program. This is the bi-annual orientation program that is held at the American Church in Paris (ACP). The program helps newly arrived English speakers, preparing them for life in France. There are speakers who talk about raising children in Paris, the history of France, health care options, how to shop, how to bake with the different ingredients here... you get the idea. Additionally, many of the English speaking groups around town come to display their organizational information.
The conference also provides you an opportunity to meet other people in your same situation. I can't say enough good things about the program. For those of you working in France, there is also a Bloom While You Work program on March 19. If you are interested in either program, click the Bloom button on the left margin.
The ACP has two windows designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany, "Faith" and "Hope." Apparently, these window are the only works by the Tiffany studios installed in a religious setting in France.
Here is a picture of "Hope."
