With low commodity markets and continued harvest delays, farm stress is a reality. Do you know a farmer or rancher who is struggling? Bishop Bill Tesch of the Northwestern Minnesota Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America says it’s time for straight talk. “Get past the price of corn and soybeans, right? Get to how’s it really going and if you think someone is really in trouble don’t be afraid to ask the hard questions.” There is an acronym Bishop Tesch likes to share: ACE – Ask, Care, Escort. “Ask the question, offer care and escort or help them get to the services they need.” Hear more from Tesch in this episode of TransFARMation.
