The 75th annual Freed-Hardeman University Lectureship concludes today on the university’s campus in Henderson, Tenn.. This year, about 2,600 people registered to attend, according to the Jackson (Tenn.) Sun. (We haven’t heard any details about how the mid-week winter storm impacted the event.)
A feature in the Sun details the way the annual lectureship changes the daily routines of Freed-Hardeman students:

During Freed-Hardeman University’s annual Bible Lectureship, the students, faculty and staff are faced with challenges and changes in routine. Empty parking spaces are a rarity, the lines in the cafeteria are longer and daily chapel services are more populated, according to some students.
Wayne Scott, vice president of student services and dean of students, said the school does prepare students every year prior to the lectureship — which began Sunday and ends Friday.
“The lines in the cafeteria are obviously much longer,” he said. “All Bible classes are canceled. There are lots of visitors, so students’ routines change a bit. But it’s a good thing.”

    FHU School of Biblical Studies Launches Online Journal
    The Freed-Hardeman University School of Biblical Studies has launched an online academic religious journal. Titled Kingdom, the journal will feature articles by the FHU family of advanced Bible students, Bible faculty and Bible graduates but is not limited to those authors.
    Dr. Ralph Gilmore, professor of Bible and of Philosophy, will edit the journal. He said he chose Kingdom as the name because �it is sufficiently broad in scope so as to handle a variety of questions in the areas of religion, theology, the philosophy of religion, ethics, missiology, church history, etc.�
    Dr. Billy Smith, dean of the School of Biblical Studies, said the school has long wanted to have a journal that would �encourage deeper study and critical thinking in the study of God’s inspired word.�
    The School of Biblical Studies intends for Kingdom to be a quarterly publication. The current issue of the journal is available at <a href=”http://fhu.edu/kingdom” rel=”nofollow”>http://fhu.edu/kingdom</a>. Articles may be submitted to [email protected].
