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?"

EVENTS


Sunday, April 29 : "Emerging after the Flames: the Spirit of Fire Ecology"

In this service Rev. Caitlin will draw on her past as a nature educator to explore the spiritual lessons of fire ecology.. This service will be led by Rev. Caitlin Cotter Coillberg.
