Arizonans for a New Economy has been blessed with strong support from the Mountain Vista Unitarian Universalist (MVUU) Church in Northwest Tucson and Rev. Ron Phares for the past year. As a social justice ministry of MVUU, we have received generous support from the congregation during their Share the Plate Sundays. These funds have helped us print fliers and a banner, and we are hoping to save money to buy a digital projector for our presentations. Although we have non-profit status from the State of Arizona, we also want to raise funds to apply for federal designation for non-profit status, which costs $400.
In April 2015, we were delighted to learn that the Unitarian Universalist Church of Tucson (UUCT), under the spiritual guidance of Rev. Diane Dowgiert, has decided to host an Arizonans for a New Economy Share the Plate Sunday in the future.
Check out this podcast from Rev. Diane’s sermon on the great challenge of our era: “…the shift from the industrial growth society to a life-sustaining civilization…” She skillfully ties the UU principle of the interconnedtednes of all life to the teachings of the Buddha and to the role of public banking in solving the national crisis of economic inequality. (The public banking shout out is toward the end.)
