Condolences to the Family and Friends of Anne Hale Johnson

We are forever grateful for the leadership by Anne Hale Johnson as she lent her wisdom and spirit to Ghost Ranch in a significant way through her participation in the yearly Ghost Ranch series Discerning the Signs of the Times. For over 27 years, Ghost Ranch has hosted leaders in the Church, international affairs, politics and social justice organizations in annual discussion regarding moral issues facing church and society. Anne was instrumental in guiding the way.

Dearest Family and Friends,

It is with great sadness we share the news that our magnificent mother, Anne Hale Johnson, was embraced by the arms of our Lord on the eve of January 18th. Please know your outpouring of communication buoyed her spirits during her final days.

We share with you one of her favorite prayers:

Lord, open unto us

Light for our darkness,

Courage for our fear,

Hope for our despair,

Peace for our turmoil,

Joy for our sorrow,

Strength for our weakness,

Wisdom for our confusion,

Forgiveness for our sins,

Love for our hate,

Open unto me-

Thy self for our selves.

Lord, Lord, open unto us.

Howard Thurman

We will communicate details about her celebration of life once arrangements are confirmed.

In your love for her may you find light.

Peace,

Joy & Randy
