Willie Roberts, SEBTS student, gave this chapel address as part of a Student Coordinating Council Chapel. The service began with some opening scripture reading of Psalm 23 and John 4:31-36. Willie Roberts begins his prayer at 5:25 and immediately goes into his sermon afterwards. He speaks from 5:25-18:19. The title of his sermon was "Let Us Go Forward, Proclaiming the Gospel of Christ." Roberts speaks on how Christians must never stay still but instead should constantly press forward in the faith, recognizing that Jesus is always with us.
Dr. Donna M. Forrester was the Chaplain of SEBTS. The scripture reading was from John 1:1-18 and Matthew 1:18-25. In this message, Dr. Forrester explores the signs of God being with us, truth, love, and peace. This is connected to the scripture reading through Jesus being called Immanuel, "God with us." She also briefly explores learning perseverance through the example of African American slaves.
Dr. William H. Willimon was Minister to the University and Professor of the Practice of the Christian Ministry at Duke University in Durham, NC. The scripture reading is from Matthew 3:13-15. The theme of his message is "Christians are made, not born." The message focuses on the subject of baptism and its implications on the daily life of a Christian, especially as seen in Romans 6.
