    • Free to Be Me, Responsible for Us
    • Speaker: Rev Ben Bortin
    • Worship Associate: Mark Potter
    • Musician: Steven Skoldberg
    • We who are fortunate enough to experience freedom cherish it, or at least we should. It is a priceless blessing to be without handcuffs, physical, intellectual, or spiritual. That freedom, however, in order to be brought to full flower, must be guided by astute judgment and a sense of responsibility. And what is our responsibility toward others?

    • Reconciliation and Restorative Practices
    • Speaker: Rev. Ned Wight
    • Worship Associate: Tuna Flores
    • Musician: Laurie DiBartolo
    • Is reconciliation a core commitment of Unitarian Universalism in the 21st century?  Is our shared commitment to communal well-being as powerful as our commitment to individual freedom?  These are questions that Rev. Ned will address in this exploration of “restorative justice” and “restorative practices,” which some UUs are advocating as alternatives to “retributive justice” and “punitive practices.”  How might these alternatives inform everything from our stance toward criminal justice to the ways we deal with interpersonal disputes?”

    • Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil
    • Speaker: Rev. Kimberly Quinn Johnson
    • Worship Assistant: Michael Daly
    • Musician: Steven Skoldberg
    • From enslavement, to lynching, and now mass incarceration, Black people in America have been subject to extraordinary surveillance and control. Sharing from her recent experience in Alabama, Rev. Johnson explores this history, telling the story of racial injustice in America. She asks us to consider how we, as people of faith are called to interrupt this narrative, and to help create a new story.  Please join us for a screening of the film 13th at noon.

Events

  •  
  • 13th Film Screening and Discussion.
  • Sunday, August 11; 2:00pm
  • Please join us for this special screening and discussion of Ava DuVernay’s film, 13TH at UU Congregation of the South Fork (977 Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike)
  •  
  • The 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution abolished slavery. But it included a provision many people don’t know about. “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist.”
  •  
  • That exception justifies the use of forced labor as long as the laborer is a convict. This documentary makes the case that inclusion of this loophole is only one of the justifications for continuing domination of people of color.
  •  
  • Director Ava DuVernay supports her thesis through the use of both historical footage and interviews. From Nixon’s ‘Law & Order’ reign to Clinton’s harsh sentencing for drug offense, the NEW Jim Crow has lead to mass incarceration and created the ‘Prison/Industrial Complex.’
