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?"
Why is offering sanctuary to someone not just a political act, but a religious one? And in particular, how is the concept of sanctuary a natural outgrowth of our Universalist roots? This service will be led by Rev. Julia Hamilton.
Science Night has ended. Thanks to everyone who has participated over the years.
