"Lisa and I join the community in mourning the death of Robert Seymour, founding pastor of the Binkley Memorial Baptist Church in Chapel Hill, and in extending support to his family. Bob’s counsel and inspiration shaped my life and vocation at Mars Hill and Chapel Hill, and Lisa drew strength as director of North Carolinians Against Gun Violence from his encouragement.
