James Dobson Statement on Colorado Shootings

Colorado Springs, Colo. –  Focus on the Family Chairman James C. Dobson, Ph.D., issued the following statement today in response to the shootings at New Life Church in Colorado Springs and Youth With a Mission missionary center in Arvada:
“The Focus on the Family community is grieving over the Sunday shootings at New Life Church and Youth With a Mission missionary center.  It is always tragic when these senseless acts of violence occur, and they are occurring now with shocking regulatory in our nation. Yesterday, however, the targets were two religious organizations where men and women worship, serve their neighborhoods and seek care.  There are no ‘sanctuaries’ in today’s culture.
“Focus on the Family was founded to help families and, during this time of crisis, we will continue to do that. We are working with area churches and pastors to provide counseling and support to those affected by the shootings.
“As we pray for the friends and families touched by these tragedies, we take comfort in the fact that, even when the world doesn’t make sense, we don’t have to walk alone. God is with us and He is still in control even when we don’t understand why things happen. We trust him to work out all things – even this tragedy – for the good of those who love Him.”
