New minister begins in November

We are pleased to welcome a new minister to Friendship Fellowship at Pineda beginning in November.

She comes to us after a year long search but we are confident that this will be the partnership we’ve been looking for. She has been in Unitarian Universalist ministry for several years with a variety of experiences and interests. She will not only lead us in growth and strength but will become an active community member with us and with the concerns we share as a faith.

We rejoice in this next step as we celebrate 25 years.

- Susanne Holland, Co-Chair of the Church Leadership Council

General Assembly available online

What is Unitarian Universalism?

If you'd like to get a better idea of what Unitarian Universalism is and whether our way of responsibly searching for truth and meaning might be for you, click here for an article we've written about it. But to give you a quick preview of what we believe, we offer you this Welcome written by our Minister Emeritus, Rev. Dr. John M. Higgins:

"Welcome to this place.

This is a place where no revealed truths are promoted and no scripture or human being accepted as infallible. It is a place for searching for truth, but we are believers.

We believe in intellectual freedom, we believe in justice, we believe in compassion, and for concern for each other and for the whole world. We believe in commitment to those ideals which make us active in the struggle for human dignity.

We are Unitarian Universalists."

Who is Friendship Fellowship at Pineda?

Born of the liberal Unitarian Universalist tradition and dedicated to the principles of a free faith, Friendship:

    • affirms the value and dignity of all human beings

    • practices the free and responsible search for truth where ever it may be

    • respects the right of all individuals to their own religious convictions

    • embraces the diversity of life and searches within it for new insights

    • strives to make our world more harmonious, just and peaceful

    • sees living as the goal of life, so we enjoy living responsibly

We welcome all who long for a free and open atmosphere in which to search for their own faith, expand their spiritual horizons, or find new ways to interact with the world in which they live. We welcome diversity of belief and lifestyle because everyone deserves the stimulation of an intellectually active, emotionally supportive and socially conscious community.

This congregation affirms and promotes the full participation of persons in all our activities and endeavors, including membership, programming, hiring practices, and the calling of religious professionals without regard to race, color, gender, gender identity and expression, affectional or sexual orientation, age or national origin.
