- The service begins with the reading of 1 Peter 2:9-10 (00:00-00:38) and prayer reflected in the writings of John Greenleaf Whittier (00:39-04:49). There was no introduction for the speaker, Edwin Luther Copeland, but he was Professor of Missions at SEBTS. He begins by mentioning the subject of the message, “The Ethic of the Christian Mission,” describing the mission as always being done according to the ethic, and the ethic being measured according to the method (04:50-06:15). First, the ethic is one of servantile radical obedience, not a means of selfish gain (06:16-11:56). Second, the ethic is one of thorough-going honesty concerning the gospel message (11:57-20:17). Third, the ethic is one of identification or self-giving love (20:18-22:39). He ends in prayer (22:40-23:17), and the service ends in singing (23:18-24:25).
