Ben Sigel Johnson, Special Instructor in Music, facilitates this program which starts with a congregational hymn and prayer. The main program then starts off with the singing of Psalm 1 (7:30-12:40) and then the Ordination of Judas Maccabeus set to music by Handel (12:45-18-39). Then an invitational is given with the singing of Psalm 23 to a symphony written by Paul Crestin, one of Southeastern’s foremost composers (22:55-28:05). Mr. Johnson ends the program with a Spiritual and benediction (28:06-end).
After reading Philippians 2:19-3:4, Dr. William Claudius Strickland, who was Associate Professor of New Testament Interpretation, spoke about the "Three Marks of a Worshiping Community". The three marks are worshiping God by His Spirit, boasting only in Lord Jesus, and not allowing oneself to depend on physical advantages.
