Earth Justice Ministry Announcements
"Earth Justice Ministry  wishes you peace and happiness in this season of change and new beginnings. We also recognize that this pandemic has upset all our lives, but moreso those who've lost family members and income. Therefore we encourage you to email, write or phone the ACC to request that they encourage APS to forgive electric bill debts that are due to loss of income because of Covid 19 as well as not approving APS's request for a rate hike. Information is at this link  https://www.phoenixuu.org/aps-rate-hike-public-comment/
Recycle Craft Workshop- Save your Christmas cards from others and gift wrap!!!!  Monday, 12/28/2020 at 7 pm, Laurel Hardin will conduct a workshop to make topiary balls from used Christmas cards or gift wrap. 

Meeting ID: 948 9619 2057, Passcode: 670418

You will need 30 3" (approx.) circles cut out of the fronts of old Christmas cards, an equilateral triangle that just fits inside that circle (to trace on the circles for folding), white craft glue (like Elmers), lots of paper clips, and glitter (any color).
If you have ideas for recycle crafts for other holidays or purposes, please send them to Wanda Lamm at dwsearch@cox.net  "


Eat Plants for the Planet 
Please submit your vegan recipes for our eventual online cookbook to uuejministry@gmail.com  

Why? Because if we keep burning fossil fuels at our current rates, food may become harder to grow in many places and harder to access in others, and what does grow could be less and less nutritious. 
How? One way is to learn about cooking earth-friendly foods.  Climate Reality Leaders share in their free new e-book, Climate-Smart Cooking and the Future of Food, that making a difference today is possible.  You can have it for free at
