Playing Time



This recording begins with the reading of Philippians 2:12-16 at the Monroe Street Baptist Church. This is followed by hymn and gospel songs including “I Know the Lord Will Make a Way”. A man then delivers a prayer calling for tithing. Dell then talks about a convention in Columbus and worries about how physical materials are surpassing spiritual needs in people’s minds. He introduces Ephesians 4 and tells the congregation that men may have spirit, but God is above all. He bemoans contemporary preachers needing to have the “DD” after their names to prove they are better when Jesus was humble and needed nothing to talk about the word of God. He leads an enthusiastic call and response quoting Philippians 2:13 and Mark 16:16, talking about being humble before God.
