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.

Upcoming Services

December 11: “Mindful Amid the Flurry”
Rev. Peter Farriday
We don’t get actual snow flurries in LA, but the flurry of the winter holidays can sometimes be discombobulating as well as joyful. But applying the contemplative practice of mindfulness can keep us serene yet energized. Come ready to reap the benefits of this gift you can use all year round!

December 18: "Holiday Music Service" 
Hosted by Sara Brown & Scott Roewe 
Sing and listen to music that will move your spirit! This Sunday will feature FIA String Quartet led by Bonnie Van Duyke. Come celebrate with us!

December 25: “The Gospel of Jesus”
Rev. Peter Farriday
It’s often been argued that too little is known about Jesus’ real life to say much that’s definite. But biblical scholar John Dominic Crossan says the real issue is scholars who avoid history because it contradicts their religious beliefs. This Sunday we’ll encounter Crossan’s “Gospel of Jesus” free of mythic exaggeration and theological conjecture—and what his radical egalitarian vision might teach us today. We'll also have a very special guest musician, Natalie Mendoza, so be prepared to enjoy both learning and listening.
