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?"
