Starting our month-long discussion of gun violence is Fr. Lawrence Farley, the pastor of St. Herman’s Orthodox Church in Langley, BC, and author of numerous books, including the Orthodox Bible Study Companion Series. But first, this weekend in Falls Church, Virginia, the Orthodox Christian Association of Medicine, Psychology and Religion is hosting its annual conference. His Grace, Bishop John of Worcester and New England from the Antiochian Archdiocese will be giving the Keynote Address at that event, but he spoke with Fr. Chris by phone about his perspectives on ministry and medical care to the elderly.
