Monte Vista Unitarian Universalist Congregation (formerly the First Unitarian Society of Pomona Valley) has been a beacon of liberal religious life in the Pomona Valley since 1888. We are located just east of Los Angeles.

We are a progressive community that encourages and supports individual spiritual quests while we work together for social justice.  We cherish the diversity of age, ability, belief, race, ethnicity, country of origin, language, economic status, education, political perspective, gender, sexual orientation or family structure.

We are Freethinker Friendly: we provide a welcoming community for people with atheist, agnostic, humanist , and other non-theistic world views.

We hope you will find a spiritual home with us.

    I’ve taken the title from this year’s District Assembly (DA) of Unitarian Universalists, which will be held a month earlier than we’re used to.  We are meeting in the borderlands of Arizona and Mexico, March 31 through April 2, and you are invited to witness and participate in border activities near Nogales, Green Valley, Sierra Vista, and Tucson.  I’ll share my experiences in the borderlands and tell you what to expect in this very different, hands-on district assembly.  Visit the website at http://justiceda2017.weebly.com.  Early registration discount ends February 15 and  registration stays open through March 15.  There will be a new member recognition in the service.

    Is a belief in God central to the religious quest?  Many think so.  But Unitarian Universalism teaches a core of faith, of human values, that transcend binding definitions of a higher power.  Are we afraid to let go of God?  Can we even hold on to such an idea?  In a society where “atheist” is the most feared word, are we ready for religion beyond God?  Lily Popova will direct the choir.

    We love it when comedians do the top ten of anything, so let’s apply that to congregational life.  I gathered my own list of funniest and most profound over many years of parish ministry.  I’ll share my favorite jokes and insights, always, always protecting the identity of the guilty (mostly me, though), and have some fun with faith and an offbeat look at life in general.  Don’t worry—this is not about any parishioner’s confidences and confessions; it’s mostly just self-awareness and revelation.

    Rights at Risk is the title for this year’s Justice Sunday. Every year congregations hold a membership drive for the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC), delving deeper into issues than we can during the holiday’s Guest at Your Table Program. Some of the rights at risk around the globe include sexual orientation and gender identity, refugee status, and natural disaster relief. This year, UUSC is asking us to join in support of marginalized communities targeted because of who they are: people under particular threat because of religion, race, and immigrant or refugee status.
