What we're about

Please join us on our journey

We welcome everyone who seeks a religion guided by love, reason and conscience.

Respecting the worth and dignity of each individual, and treasuring what we learn from each person's unique experience, we welcome a diversity of ages, sexual orientations, races, gender identities, classes, abilities, theologies and religious heritages.

We are united not by a single creed, but by a covenant of mutual respect.

We encourage spiritual curiosity in our children and we eagerly continue that learning journey throughout our lives.

We are inspired by music and the arts, science and the beauty of the earth.

We are building a world that is more just, peaceful, and sustainable.

We support each other in community, building relationships with depth and caring concern.

If you also value doubt as well as commitment, are seeking truth and meaning, and want to be a part of a community where people care for each other and the world, join us!

We're part of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Palo Alto (UUCPA).

SUNDAY LABYRINTH WALK Date: Every Sunday Time: 9:05-9:20 am Location: UUCPA Labyrinth Facilitator: Marilyn Austin Contact: Marilyn Austin ([masked]) Registration: Not required Walking a labyrinth is a silent and ordinarily solitary activity. However, many people find it uplifting to sometimes do it with a group. UUCPA participants of every belief (e.g., theists, spiritual non-theists, humanists) gather before first service to walk our labyrinth together.

Sunday Meditation

Unitarian Universalists of Palo Alto

Sunday Meditation Date: Every Sunday beginning April 8, 2018 Time: 10-11am—with entrance and exit possible at 10:20 Location: Church Library—entrance and exit only via side door (across from bathrooms) Coordinator: Eric Bier This meditation opportunity is open to all UUCPA participants. Those who already meditate regularly may use it as a time and place to pursue their regular practice. Those for whom meditation is new may use this as a way to try it out, under the guidance of an experienced fellow UU. In order to make this meditation time accessible to people with other Sunday morning commitments (e.g. The Forum and choir), it will have a built in break at 10:20 to allow quiet entrance and exit for participants who need to do so.
