What we're about

Founded in 2012, the Sanctuary Boston is a community of vibrant worship and real connection grounded in Unitarian Universalism. Worship that’s heart-centered, spirit-filled, down-to-earth and wicked smart. Connection that supports us as we seek to more fully answer the call of love.

Individually, our beliefs vary widely -- we are Buddhist and Christians, agnostics and mystics. We believe that there are many ways to express the miracle of autumn’s falling leaves, a new life, the intimacy of friendship, the wonder of this big blue ball floating in glittering vastness and all the awe of this world. We support each other on this spiritual adventure, each of us seeking our own spiritual path in the context of community.

In the end we don’t feel spiritual community is so much about what we “believe to be true” but about how we believe we should live and love and share the gift of our lives.
