In this difficult time of financial crisis, it is so very important
that we reach out to community for prayer, guidance and support. This
is no time to isolate. We greatly need each other’s love,
compassion and support, perhaps more than we ever imagined. I know
that many of our readers are feeling pain and grief over the loss of
their home, job, and for some, shame about their unpaid bills, debts
and financial circumstances. But I want each of you to know that you
deserve help and support, kindness and community, regardless of your
circumstances or how you got there.
There are many resources that are available to you that I’d like to
share with you and encourage you to explore and join. The Beliefnet
community is a vast resource that has much to offer you including
prayer circles, meditation groups, forums, message boards and help in
many forms that can assist you during this challenging time.
