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.

declarationAt this extraordinary time in our nation’s history, we are called to affirm our profound commitment to the fundamental principles of justice, equity and compassion, to truth and core values of American society.

In the face of looming threats to our environment, immigrants, Muslims, people of color, and the LGBTQ community and the rise of hate speech, harassment and hate crimes, we affirm our belief in the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Read more and sign the Declaration of Conscience.

Upcoming Services

Dec. 3: Happiness from the Depths
Rev. Peter Farriday
“The pursuit of happiness” is written right into the U.S. constitution. But what makes for true happiness? In the midst of the hyper-commercial holiday season, discover some differences between surface happiness and a more enlightened happiness that stems from deeper satisfactions.

Dec. 10: The Light of Consciousness
Rev. Peter Farriday
Lights on trees and houses, candles on menorahs and at latenight worship services, even parades of lighted boats on bodies of water. All of these have particular cultural meanings—and also symbolize the light of higher consciousness that dispels the darkness of fear and ignorance. Come explore how enlightened consciousness is the underlying heart of this Season of Light.

Dec. 17: Gather ‘Round and Sing a Holiday Song!
Led by Music Director, Scott Roewe
We will come together and celebrate the season, rejoicing in the music of the holidays.

Dec. 24: The Enlightened View of Divinity
Rev. Peter Farriday
Christians call Jesus “the light of the world.” But 2000 years after that legend was born, messianic hopes of a loving world remain unfulfilled. Yet our Universalist forebears knew that the promise of ultimate absolution brings great inner peace. They just said a go-between isn’t needed, because imparting universal forgiveness (salvation) is merely Divine Love’s nature. Come rejoice in this theologically enlightened gift-of-gifts!

Dec. 31: Circular or Straight?
Shared-Pulpit Service
Does a new year lead us in a circle or a straight line, or both? What do we do to get ready for another year, whatever form it may take?
