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

June 5 - “The Tackle Box of Life”
Rev. Peter Farriday
Our Minnesota lakes finally thawed, June was when a boyhood pal and I would fervently pour through our fishing tackle boxes: Does this still float? Is that old lead weight still useful? My dad handed this down, but does it work for— Yeeouch!, watch those hidden hooks! Such questions also apply to our lives, so with summer here we’ll reel in some wisdom that will help us keep what’s still useful, and release what’s not.
(Join our Prayer Circle immediately following the service.) 

June 12 - “Pilgrimage”
Michael Eselun
Popular guest speaker and UCLA Oncology Chaplain, Michael Eselun, will explore the idea of pilgrimage-- our pursuit of inspiration and enlightenment. Internal journeys and external ones—and some in between.

June 19 - "Our Fathers, Our Hopes"
Dale Osborne
Dale explores the idea of fatherhood learned from our fathers, and what we try to do better (or differently).

June 26 - "Making the Age of Mercy"
Rev. Hannah Petrie
Mercy is not a word often used by religious liberals but perhaps we should. In these unprecedented times of police reform and rethinking the costs of our criminal justice system, mercy may be just the idea we need to work with. And on a personal level, all of us, no matter who we are, could use a little mercy.
