Community. Courage. Love. Diversity. Generosity. Joy. These are the cornerstones of our congregation.  Since 1876, the Unitarian Society has been a beacon of progressive religion in Santa Barbara. If you are seeking a religion that speaks to your mind as well as your heart, a spiritual community with doors wide open to the world, you are welcome here. To quote the poet Mary Oliver, "What will you do with your one wild and precious life?"

EVENTS


Next Sunday, February 26

“Keeping It Real” with Rev. Julia Hamilton. "Universalism" is grounded in the idea that the fate of one person is inseparable from the fate of all people -- like a flock of birds, we rise and fly together. On this Heritage Sunday, come and celebrate how we are connected, each and every one of us, with all the beautiful souls who have nested here over the years, and how we fly onward and upward with all those still arriving through our doors. You won't want to miss this celebration!
