A prophetic and progressive voice within San Francisco for more than a century.. In Short Unitarian Universalists provide a place where individuals can find the freedom to explore their beliefs in a community of other seekers. Christians, Buddhists, Jews, agnostics, atheists, and humanists gather here. Gay or straight, couples or singles, young or old--everyone is welcome to come together, seek the truth, strive for justice and help one another.
Liberal Spirituality in an Active, Comfortable Community.
The stained glass windows and traditional pews make a nice contrast to the modern messages spoken in the pulpit.
This San Francisco pioneer church was founded in 1850 but it has kept looking forward, involving itself in spiritual and social justice issues of the current times.
The predominately straight congregation welcomes people of all religious and ethnic backgrounds, and is in the forefront of public witnessing for equal rights for Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual/Transgendered people. The Society's 19th Senior Minister is the first openly gay man called to that position. Rev. Stewart, his partner of 25 years, and their five children illustrate the warmth and diversity of the community.
Small Group Ministries, Social Justice activities, and Religious Education programs for both adults and children are popular ways for newcomers to meet other participants in smaller groups.
