by FHA Executive Director, Dale Bartscher
Dear FHA Family,
Our collective hearts have been broken due to the news coming out of Newtown, Connecticut. Newtown is a scenic “small town” located in Fairfield County in southwestern Connecticut, about six miles from New York City. FRC President Tony Perkins wrote: “What was meant to be a season of peace and joy, in this small town, has been shattered by the news of a school shooting in a small Connecticut town. It is a solemn reminder of why God sent His Son as a baby in a manger over 2,000 years ago to save us from our sins.” As a grandfather and father of two children, my heart goes out to the parents of these little ones whose lives were ended far before their time, and to the families of the innocent adults killed. The FHA will be joining you as we pray, not only for this suffering community and those directly touched by this tragedy, but for our nation — where senseless acts of violence like this have become all too common.
