LABC Update – Saturday, May 13, 2023
May 12, 2023
Today I am sharing two links that are connected to our commemoration of Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month. The first is the link to the website of the Alliance of Asian American Baptist Churches. You may remember that the Director of AABC, The Reverend Michele Turek, worshipped with us and brought greetings on Sunday, April 23.
The second is the link to a powerful statement by the Asian American Christian Collaborative on the Allen Mall (Texas) shooting.
But we must also pray that God moves citizens and elected officials alike to not hide behind “thoughts and prayers” but courageously pursue policies that reduce the scourge of gun violence in our communities.
We must be educated about gun laws in our local communities, encourage conversations about gun safety in our church spaces, and press our elected officials to pass common sense gun safety laws to make our communities safer.
