[Church Service: Shall We Look for Another]
Memorial United Baptist Church, Rev. E.B. Newberry, Pastor. Shall We Look for Another
James H. Costen collection
This is a recording of a church service at Memorial United Baptist Church, with Reverend E.B. Newberry serving as pastor. He delivers church business news, and talks about a group attending a Presbyterian general assembly in Houston, Texas, followed by individual and group prayer. He introduces his sermon based on Matthew 11, about John the Baptist’s question from prison and Jesus’ response to it. He describes the importance of leadership and how followers must seek and trust the leader, like how John found Jesus, and warns the congregation about seeking false leaders. The service concludes with the singing of hymns and a closing prayer and recognitions.
