The service begins during the speaking of James Iley McCord, from Princeton Seminary, discussing Bultmann, demythologization, and Biblicism (00:00-07:42). He then discusses Bultmann’s doctrine of grace and eschatology (07:43-17:51). From this, he moves on to discuss Paul Tillich’s views on existence, the Fall, soteriology, and grace (17:52-23:08). He concludes his lecture with the present advantages of studying history (23:09-29:57). The service then transitions into a question-and-answer portion between students/faculty and James McCord (29:58-1:02:27).
The service begins with the reading of Proverbs 3:19-20 (00:00-00:18) and prayer (00:19-03:30). An introduction is given for the speaker, Dr. William J. Fallis, who was Editor of Broadman Press (03:31-04:18). His Scripture lesson comes from Genesis 1:1-5 and 26-27, Psalm 104:13-15, Isaiah 40:18 and 22, and Psalm 103:22 (04:19-06:27). His message focuses on four secrets of God in our world which we may often take for granted: the secret of the star, displaying God’s order (06:28-12:17), the secret of the seed, displaying God’s variety (12:18-14:23), the secret of the child, displaying God’s companionship with man (14:24-16:26), and the secret of the cross, displaying God’s power and wisdom (16:27-18:39). He ends with prayer (18:40-19:54).
Roy O. McClain was pastor of First Baptist Church in Atlanta, GA. There is a prayer and introduction from 0:16-5:46. Rev. McClain speaks from 5:47-30:03. McClain preached from 1 Corinthians 13:11. Pastor McClain discussed differences in spiritual maturity between a man and a child. He informed the students that there is no such thing as a comfortable church nor should there be one. Instead, pastors are to make sure that their congregation is continuously growing in their faith.
