Who We Are

Santa Clarita Unitarian Universalist Church liberal religion By Rev. Peter Farriday

Peter Farriday smCenturies 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.

September 11: “The Roots of Intolerance”
Rev. Farriday
Fifteen years ago this Sunday, nearly 3,000 people were killed when terrorists crashed two hijacked airplanes into New York City’s Twin Towers. A third plane hit the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and a fourth crashed in a Pennsylvania field. In commemorating these tragedies we’ll explore the underlying nature of religious and other forms of intolerance, and how each of us can serve as a counterweight to it.

September 18: “Excavating Our True Nature”
Rev. Farriday
Most of us, most of the time, routinely identify and define ourselves through our most apparent traits and preferences. (For instance, “I’m a middle-aged married lesbian and corporate manager who loves animals and despises exercise.”) But every spiritual tradition posits that our True Nature is infinitely deeper than this—and this Sunday we’ll drill through several strata to reveal the divine core of who we truly are.
