My name is Megan Moyer and I have been a member of the Unitarian Society of Santa Barbara for three plus years. I just recently became the Membership Coordinator for the Society as well. I love this community and want to tell you why.
In January, 2011, I came to a Sunday service at the Unitarian Society of Santa Barbara for the first time. I was looking for connection and a way to fill a spiritual void in my life. As I entered the sanctuary, nearly filled, I felt a welcoming energy of anticipation and unity. It appeared that everyone in attendance really wanted to be there. I felt as if the service was speaking directly to me – I felt at home, in sync, and immediately welcomed and valued.
I became a member quickly and found not only a home but a place where I could contribute and receive. I found acceptance, with no expectation that I conform to any doctrine. I found a free and open faith whose Seven Principles are in accord with my beliefs and moral compass and a place that allows me to grow personally and spiritually. I found a community that cares about each other and provides safe, healing spaces, a community actively involved in social justice issues, and a community which encourages life- long seeking and learning. I feel so good when I walk into the sanctuary or the campus. I hope you find yourself at home here at the Unitarian Society, too!
