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?"

It’s Mardi Gras season! Mardi Gras is French for “Fat Tuesday,” the day before Ash Wednesday in the Christian tradition. It’s the last chance to celebrate and indulge before the seriousness of Lent begins. Satire, and a reversal of the traditional order of society, are a fundamental part of the festivities. This Sunday we’ll bring a little bit of New Orleans fun to Santa Barbara.
