ACSI Statement on Allen, Texas Shooting May 8, 2023

Our hearts are heavy to see yet another shooting, this one in Texas this weekend. Personally, this strikes too close to home impacting an ACSI Member Christian school community where I served for more than 20 years. In times like these, we cling to the hope found only in Jesus Christ who provides peace amidst cultural chaos. We know God cares for all involved and loves the world so much (1 Peter 5:7, John 3:16). Let’s pray for the injured, the innocent lives lost, and the families forever changed by this tragic, senseless act of violence. May God’s peace envelop those impacted in the days to come. “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” Matthew 5:4
