We are brave, curious, and compassionate thinkers and doers. We are diverse in faith, ethnicity, history and spirituality, but aligned in our desire to make a difference for the good. We have a track record of standing on the side of love, justice, and peace.
We have radical roots and a history as self-motivated spiritual people: we think for ourselves and recognize that life experience influences our beliefs more than anything
We need not think alike to love alike. We are people of many beliefs and backgrounds: people with a religious background, people with none, people who believe in a God, people who don’t, and people who let the mystery be.
We are Unitarian Universalist and Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Humanist, Jewish, Muslim, Pagan, atheist and agnostic, believers in God, and more.
On the forefront of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer inclusion for more than 40 years, we are people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
We welcome you: your whole self, with all your truths and your doubts, your worries and your hopes. Join us on this extraordinary adventure of faith. Get involved!
FRIENDSHIP SANGHA OF THE HEART (BUDDHIST MEDITATION)
The Friendship Sangha of the Heart practices mindfulness meditation in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh. Monday evening meditation includes silent sitting meditation, silent walking meditation, inspirational readings, singing/chanting, and an opportunity to share about the meditation practice. This weekly program is open to anyone who wants to meditate. To learn more about this practice you are welcome to attend a once a month introduction. A silent potluck vegetarian meal is held when a fifth Monday occurs in a month, about four times a year
