'Put people ahead of money': Christian groups ask Ducey to extend stay-at-home order

From Arizona-

Christian leaders around the Valley sent a letter to Gov. Doug Ducey urging him to extend the stay at home orders that were put in place through April 30 to help curb the spread of the new coronavirus outbreak.

The letter was written by the Right Rev. Jennifer Reddall, the sixth Episcopal bishop of Arizona, on behalf of Arizona's congregations of the Episcopal Church, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, United Church of Christ and the United Methodist Church.
It was hand-delivered to the governor's office on Tuesday, Reddall told The Arizona Republic.

Reddall began the letter by thanking Ducey for his leadership and "Stay Home, Stay Healthy, Stay Connected" policy which she said has "helped flatten the curve and keep the epidemic somewhat under control in our state."
