“Christian Chronicle Live” will tackle the issue of church shootings with a panel discussion Feb. 5 at 4:30pm during Freed-Hardeman University’s annual Bible lectureship. Chronicle editor-in-chief Bobby Ross, Jr. will moderate a discussion by two ministers whose churches have experienced shootings and a retired police captain.
Panel members will be Joey Spann, minister of the Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in Antioch, Tennessee; Britt Farmer, minister of the West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, Texas, and Stewart Brackin, a retired captain from the Glendale, California, police department now serving as FHU’s director of safety and security.
In a little over two years, three churches of Christ have suffered fatal shootings. The December 2019 attack at the West Freeway congregation where two members, Tony Wallace and Richard White, were killed is the most recent. In September 2017, church member Melanie Crow was killed and seven others, including Spann, were injured at Burnette Chapel. April 2019 saw the fatal shooting of church elder Gordon Parmenter at the Salmon Arm congregation in British Columbia.
FHU lectureship director Doug Burleson described the discussion as “relevant and timely” and said he looks forward to hearing it. Those who cannot attend the event in person will be able to view it live by going to fhu.edu/lectureship.
