Less is More: How Degrowth Will Save The World by Jason Hickel, 2020
Our planet is in trouble. But how can we reverse the current crisis and create a sustainable future? The answer is: DEGROWTH.
Less is More is the wake-up call we need. By shining a light on ecological breakdown and the system that's causing it, Hickel shows how we can bring our economy back into balance with the living world and build a thriving society for all. This is our chance to change course, but we must act now -- Danny Dorling, Professor of Geography, University of Oxford

Spring is in the air... And the UUCT Auction will be here before the swallows return from Capistrano! 
Do you have a skill you'd like to share? A mouthwatering meal you'd like to offer to friends? That special dessert that is waiting to please the palate? What about a service - window washing or yard clean-up? 
Or maybe you have an Amazon gift card or a store gift card, that you'll never use. Gee, who wouldn't appreciate a gas gift card with the sky-high gas prices. 
You can mail them or drop them off at the church. (Please label them as '2022 Auction Gift', and please call the office ahead of time.) 
The UUCT Fundraising Auction will be held online the week of June 5 – 12th, 2022. More details about how to bid/buy will follow. 
We're all in this together so let's put the FUN in Fundraiser!

Agriculture has been an important part of life in New Mexico for at least 4,000 years? Pistachios are a major crop now in the Las Cruces area. Think dark chocolate covered pistachios, green chile pistachio brittle, (yes, made with Hatch, NM green chiles), or what about pistachio wine? The Heart of the Desert Store on the plaza in Mesilla (one of our stops) sells all these goodies.
El Paso is the largest U.S. city on the Mexican border? The historic Mission Trail is a nine-mile stretch across time in El Paso County’s Mission Valley. The Ysleta Mission, founded in 1682, was built by the Tigua Indians and is oldest church in the state of Texas. 
Fort Davis played a major role in the history of the Southwest, and it was a key post in the defense system of western Texas? From 1854 until 1891, troops stationed at the post protected emigrants, freighters, mail coaches, and travelers on the San Antonio-El Paso Road hoping to reach the gold fields of California. Today, Fort Davis is considered one of the best remaining examples of a frontier military post in the American Southwest. 
In the 1930s, Roswell was a site for much of Robert H. Goddard's early rocketry work? The Roswell Museum and Art Center maintains an exhibit that includes a recreation of Goddard's rocket engine development workshop. 
The first historical record of the Marfa lights was in 1883? A young cowhand, Robert Reed Ellison, saw a flickering light while he was driving cattle through Paisano Pass and wondered if it was the campfire of Apache Indians. Other settlers told him they often saw the lights, but that when they investigated they found no ashes or other evidence of a campsite.
