Who We Are

By Rev. Peter Farriday

Peter Farriday sm

Centuries ago in Europe, many religious scholars concluded that the Divine was a single Unity (not a three part trinity). They called themselves Unitarians. Others determined that a truly benevolent Spirit would universally love all souls despite their failings, not punish them for eternity. They became Universalists. In 1961 in the U. S., these traditions united.

Today Unitarian Universalism still honors these roots. It has also grown beyond them to draw spiritual wisdom and inspiration wherever it’s encountered: in writings and poetry ancient and modern; in nature and art; in human acts of compassion and justice. View our Six Sources.

Our “free faith” doesn’t subscribe to a static creed, because human understanding is ever-evolving. This allows us to fully embrace modern knowledge, and at the same time open our hearts to the one sacred force that animates all religious expressions.

This unfolding quest broadens our minds. It helps us to live loving lives and deal with life’s hardships. And it stirs our desire to create a more harmonious and sustainable world. View our Seven Principles.

If you resonate with these values, we hope you will grace us with a visit to a Sunday service or a social event. It’s quite possible that you will be very glad you did.

Upcoming Services

April 30: “Tell Me Why”
Rev. Peter Farriday
Search the internet for “tell me why song” and Wikipedia produces a list of three dozen different tunes, performed by artists from Elvis Presley to Taylor Swift, from the Beatles to the Bee Gees. Why? Because while knowing what and how are important, the human mind and spirit yearns to go deeper—to know why. This Sunday we explore the “Why?” of Unitarian Universalism… of UU of SCV… and of our lives.

May 7: “Marks of Masculine Maturity”
Rev. Peter Farriday
The social revolutions of the 1960s mercifully opened new doors concerning acceptable gender roles. Yet core male archetypes (universal psychological patterns) remain. When these are healthfully balanced a man (or anyone with a largely male “essence”) is likely to thrive, and enhance the lives of others. But if any are stunted or malformed, the opposite is true. Come explore the differences, and some ways they commonly play out in both personal and public spheres.

May 14 (Mothers Day): “The Many Modes of Millennium Mothering”
Rev. Peter Farriday
Today many aspects of personal mothering (and fathering) are practically the same as in ancient times, while others are totally new. Also new is the collective need to nourish, care for and protect Mother Earth and all her “children” in radically innovative, powerfully holistic ways—and thus give birth to a new mode of civilization in our infant millennium. This Sunday will also include our springtime Flower Communion ceremony. If possible please bring a flower to share, or several if you or a friend has a bountiful garden.

May 21: “A Sorrowful Salute”
Rev. Peter Farriday
The 20th of May is Armed Forces Day. May 29th is Memorial Day. The first honors those who serve in our nation’s military forces, as we often should. The second mourns the horrific toll of war. This incongruous concurrence brings up deep spiritual questions, and we’ll delve into some of these.
