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

 

Volunteer at the Warming Center

There is nothing quite like the feeling of being able to do something concrete and tangible to help our community. Cooking a good meal and sharing it with our guests at the Warming Centers is now a part of our culture of caring here at the Unitarian Society. We need about 80 volunteers each year to make this happen! I look forward to having you as part of the team! You can sign up here.

Next Sunday

"The Holiday Spirits" The ghosts of holidays past, present, and future will appear before your very eyes at this year's multigenerational holiday program! Be serenaded by the children's choir (the kids have been having lots of fun with Ken Ryals, our choir director) at this all-ages reflection on what the holidays mean to us today, yesterday, and beyond.
