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

Jan. 7: Who Is Getting Older?
Michael Hart
In his book Being Mortal, Atul Gawande suggests there are questions those of us who are getting older should ask ourselves. I had family-related reasons for asking those questions, but I see that they also relate directly to me.

Jan. 14: Dr. King, Visionary
Rev. Peter Farriday
On this day before Martin Luther King Jr. Day we explore this social and spiritual visionary’s prophetic call for peace and justice—and how his dream was (and still is) opposed by people fixated at lesser levels of consciousness.

Jan 21: We Are Marching in the Light of Love
Rev. Peter Farriday
Like “Marching on the Side of Love” did this same week last year, this service title plays on the name of a song in our Singing the Journey hymnal. It refers to the National Women’s March protest scheduled for January 20, 2018—the one-year mark of the last presidential inaugural. As in 2017, participants will share reflections on their protest experiences, and we’ll look at the vision set forth by the march’s founding organizers.

Jan 28: The Consciousness of Compassionate Community
Rev. Peter Farriday
This Sunday’s service explains how different levels of spiritual consciousness create differing social and political visions—and shows clearly that to create the beloved community extolled by Dr. King, “higher is better.” This leads into our February theme of “Love-in-Action,” which includes a Religious Exploration series on the visionary UUA Common Read book, Daring Democracy.
