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

May 1 - "Dancing in the Forest"
Erik Felker
How can we deal with a world in which the dancers keep stepping on each other’s −and their own − feet?

May 8 -“The Divine Mother”
Rev. Peter Farriday
Symbols of the Divine Mother, or Divine Feminine—the archetypal/spiritual energies of fertility, creative nurturance and interdependence, among others—have appeared across cultures and epochs in the form of diverse goddesses. On this Mother’s Day, we’ll explore the wisdom that ancient ideas and myths about the Divine Mother hold for us today.

May 15 - “Spiritual Medicine”
Rev. Peter Farriday
May is Mental Health Month. While recognizing that mental illness is often a multifaceted problem without easy answers, we’ll survey assorted spiritual teachings to see what relief they may offer sufferers and/or their loved ones. Meanwhile we can all offer a measure of anti-stigma medicine by engaging the subject openly and with compassion. (Plan to stay for the special meeting after the service.)

May 22 - “Faith of Our (Founding) Fathers”
Rev. Peter Farriday
At the autumn Harvest Dinner, UU of SCV member Bob Thompson won the bid to select a sermon topic. Bob chose the religious views of America’s Founding Fathers, with particular emphasis on how they viewed the Holy in nature, and their insistence on respecting religious freedom and diversity. This Sunday we consider this fascinating and timely topic, including how many of the Founders’ guiding principles parallel those of Unitarian Universalism.
