President’s WELCOME – Martha Potter

Welcome to the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the South Fork. Our community is made up of members and friends who are from many different religious backgrounds. We worship together, each in our own way. We are guided by principles not dogma. We welcome all and honor each individual’s search for truth and meaning.

My spiritual journey was not governed by one set of religious principles. My parents were secular Jews and as a child, I attended a Shula set up by the Workmen’s Circle to learn the Yiddish language, history, and culture.

When my husband and I moved to the East End in 2006, we were looking for a community whose values reflected our own beliefs in social justice and freedom of thought. We were impressed by the diversity of services and the commitment to each individual’s search for truth and meaning.

I have tried to take an active role in this community for the last 16 year and am honored to be the President of the Board of Trustees of this congregation.
