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

Sunday, Oct. 16: "PKs, UUs, Strangers, Evangelism, and Texas
Michael Guinn
What kind of a title is that for a sermon?  If you're curious, please come join us as Michael Guinn, a UU writer, speaker, and singer from Santa Barbara, shares how he and Unitarian Universalism both turn 55 this year and what a long, strange trip it's been.  

Sunday, Oct. 23:  "Mind, Body, Spirit and Aging"
John Cooper
Our physical, intellectual, emotional and social development proceeds at a generally predictable rate. However, how we view that development has a lot to do with how each of us as individuals copes with the changes that take place in our minds and bodies. John Cooper will take a look at how we perceive development, particularly how we try to understand aging. Is aging best seen through the medical model, the psychological model, or a spiritual model?

Sunday, Oct. 30: “Day of the Dead”
Rev. Farriday
On this autumnal Sunday we gather to remember, mourn and celebrate our dear departed. In true UU fashion we’ll honor Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) native to Mexico, while recalling that this coincides with the Christian All Saints Day (11/1) and All Souls Day (11/2). And of course Samhain (pr. SOW-een)—now aka Halloween— is one of the major Wiccan festivals. You are invited to bring photos or mementos of deceased loved ones for our altar, as well as any Halloween pumpkins (carved or not) you may have.
