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, September 30 : "What Is Your Future?"

The future is what will happen in the time after the present. Its arrival is considered inevitable due to the existence of time and the laws of physics. Predicting precisely what shape the future will take has always been elusive due the chaotic nature of natural and social processes. But this does not mean that the future is empty. We inevitably fill the future with assumptions and intentions in our attempts to mold it to our will. How has that worked out for you? Is it possible to overcome the chaos that is life and truly mold our future? This service will be led by Charla Bregante and Ken Ralph.

services at 9:15 and 11:15 am
