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?"

Sunday, March 24

"Farther Together" Our life's journey is our own, but none can exist in isolation. The paths we travel are often rocky and sometimes we come to realize we need a steadying hand. Moreover, it is of vital importance for each of us to reach out when we see our neighbors begin to falter, lest we run the risk that we all fall down together. This service will be led by Worship Associate Angela Karmis.

services at 9:15 and 11:15 am
