Our Family Ministry Team welcomes you to UU Santa Fe.
In our every moment and by our every act, we:
Welcome the stranger
Comfort the afflicted
Teach the ignorant
Soothe the angry
Uplift the community
Give voice to the forgotten
Heal the broken,
And serve with compassion and respect.
Be Welcome in This Special Place—Visit Often!
And so, our soul-work begins. Gatherings at UU Santa Fe are opportunities for children and adults to come together to share our exploration of our liberal religious heritage, our common values and our individual spiritual and religious journeys. Our goal is to cultivate, and sustain in all, a love of the spiritual life, a foundation for a personal theology and a life-long yearning to bless the world.
We may be teaching children, but we are raising people. When our children’s journey with UU Santa Fe is over, if we have done our duty skillfully, they will know they are whole and complete, integrated into all that is and worthy and capable of unconditional love.
We are here to journey with you and your children as we—together—search for truth, overcome injustice and live our principles. For our Unitarian Universalist community begins with a search for truth and ends with love. Who could settle for less?
Visit often, be welcome, and find a home for your family in this Special Place.

The great end in religious instructions, is not to stamp our minds upon the young, but to stir up their own; not to make them see with our eyes, but to look inquiringly and steadily with their own; not to give them a definite amount of knowledge, but to inspire a fervent love of truth; not to form an outward regularity, but to touch inward springs; not to bind them by ineradicable prejudices to our particular sect or peculiar notions, but to prepare them for impartial, conscientious judging of whatever subjects may be offered to their decision; not to burden the memory, but to quicken and strengthen the power of though; not to impose religion upon them in the form of arbitrary rules, but to awaken the conscience, the moral discernment. In a word, the great end is to awaken the soul, to bring understanding, conscience and heart into earnest vigorous action on religious and moral truth, to excite and cherish spiritual life.―William Ellery Channing (Unitarian, minister)
