  • Olin Trivette Binkley was the 2nd president of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and Professor of Christian Sociology and Ethics. The service begins with a scripture reading and prayer (0:00-4:12). Binkley’s message is on thanksgiving. Binkley begins with an introduction and reading of 1 Thessalonians 5 (4:13-5:15).
