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?"

Sunday, September 23 : "Reclaiming the Horizon"

These days it can be tempting to define ourselves by who we are not: we are against hate, we are against tyranny, we are against injustice. But we must do more than just resist. We must reclaim a moral horizon, a star toward which we are sailing together. To put it simply, what is our vision for the Beloved Community?
