Pastoral Letter from Ann
I know this period of confinement seems to go on and on. Even though we are given the assurance of God’s presence with us, these times are stressful. Stress can wear us down. Sometimes we need advice or help. Linda Loving from the Embudo Presbyterian Church published a list of resources for her parishioners for specific needs at this time. Mary Singleton and a number of others have assisted me in modifying this list for Truchas and Chimayo.
Please share this list with anyone who may be in need of these resources. Remember also that it is a sign of strength and wisdom to know when to ask for help. So do not hesitate. If you have input or additions to what is listed here, please let me know.
