People Who Notice
&
New Member Sunday

Led By:
Rev. Christine Dance
with
Worship Associate:
Gary Ezzell

Two of the hallmarks of liberal religion are questioning authority and thinking beyond ourselves. In this season where we are "noticing" a lot, we will consider what it means to be a people who notice. This morning we will also welcome new UUCP members and also recognize Transgender Day of Remembrance.
 
Sunday’s Service via Zoom.

Our Navajo Nation Student
Blanket & Clothing Drive
Thanks to the generosity of so many of you we now have a truck load of blankets, quilts (new and used) and jackets/boots/hats/gloves to deliver to Tsaile and Many Farms Schools, as well as other families in the Navajo Nation the week of the 16th. They have already had snow, temperatures way below freezing, so these will be so welcomed!

The latest report from leaders of the Native American Baha’i Institute Youth Group tells us that their fourteen teams of young people, from middle school to age twenty-eight, have traveled many miles, cut, delivered and stacked 150 loads of wood for stoves to keep people warm over the winter, fixing chimneys and stoves in the process. With your help we contributed funds for equipment to help them expand their teams of kids for this amazing work, supporting their community and building relationships, including many elders who live far out.

If you are able to help by making a donation for our ongoing work with the Navajo Nation, please click the link to sign upand we will send you information. We have received such warm appreciation for our assistance – one auntie thinks of us as her “guardian angels.” UUCP is full of warm hearts and helping hands – Thank you for your generosity!

Adventure Tales –
A Radically Inclusive Evening of Storytelling
Storytelling Fundraiser
Join us for Adventure Tales on January 30, 7:00 P.M. on Zoom. This is an event where we want you to submit a video of yourself telling a personal story. Click the link below to learn all about the event and how to submit a story, and then sign up for a free storytelling workshop led by Megan Finnerty or Liz Warren of Storytellers Project.
 
Telling stories is how people stayed connected and whiled away the long winter evenings since the days of cave dwellers. Let’s continue that tradition by learning a little more about each other in a whole new way – and raising some funds for UUCP at the same time! Contact fundraiser@phoenixuu.org
 
For more information, go to http://www.phoenixuu.org/storytellers

Civic Engagement Announcements
  • Through Vote Forward, UUCP members, friends, and extended families sent well over 1500 letters to voters in various states in an effort to get out the vote in the general election. Vote Forward is now focusing on the Georgia Senate runoff election. Join UUCP’s extended Civic Engagement team to inspire voter registration and participation by sending at least five letters (or many more).
  • 2020 has been a trying year for all of us. However, let’s try to search for memories or words of love and encouragement to share with others during this time of Thanksgiving. Words over phone lines or the internet are a less-than-optimal substitute for in-person contact, but at least technology allows us to share our LOVE.

Earth Justice Ministry Announcements
Happy Thanksgiving 
Applause!!
A big round of applause goes to all of you who wrote and called the AZ Corporation Commissioners to vote in the Clean Energy Rules Package. The vote on Friday November 13 was 4-1 to adopt the package. It did not include requirements for utilities to set amounts of renewable energy (wind and solar), however. But it did require utilities to generate electricity 100% carbon-free by 2050 with interim benchmarks. Please contact them again to thank them. Their contact info. is on the UUCP Earth Justice website.
  
Also, there is still time to write and call the ACC to request them to not approve APS's request for another rate hike, and to ask APS to forgive electric bills that have accrued to families without the means to pay due to COVID. You can do this whether you are an APS customer or not.  Monday, November 30, 2020: 
10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. is the last public comment period that you may call in to. Instructions are at  https://www.phoenixuu.org/aps-rate-hike-public-comment/
