UUs long ago started thinking of the word “worship” as a combination of the two ancient words “weorth” and “schippe” meaning “to shape things of worth”. That is a good description of what we do at the Pacific Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. We don’t bow down in adoration to a god figure, which is how the word devolved away from its origins, but we do address our values during our services.
Members and Friends of PUUF gather together in spiritual community because we need constant reminders of what matters most in life. In a world of heartbreak and dehumanization, our congregations and communities call us to our better selves. We learn to live with more wisdom, more connection, and more compassion.
Our Worship Services are weekly reflections that weave together our own thoughts and experiences with music, beauty, and words that both comfort and challenge. Our programs inspire us, and awaken us to our capacities to make a difference in our own lives and in the world.
Our Fellowship is inspired not just by religious sources but by the people with whom we journey: the diverse and spirited Unitarian Universalists.
In additions to Sunday services, PUUF also offers ceremonies for life events. Contact Rev. Ketcham to discuss your special needs.
