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?"

"Dynamic Balance" | Rev. Julia Hamilton

On this Sunday, we rest between the day and the night on the balance point of the seasons: The Fall Equinox. Are you feeling off-balance, thrown for a loop, or unsteady? Perhaps it’s time to shift our expectations about what a “balanced life” really means.
