Date:
Nov. 10, 1971
Description:
Nov. 10, 1971. Running time: (1:03:29) Thurman introduces his topic by describing "professionalism," how society permits people to remove themselves from society in order to educate themselves and become accredited for a specific field. The Christian concept of professionalism incorporates the idea of "calling," a divine sense of purpose in life. He expresses a bit of sadness that his prayers are spectacles and encourages the congregation to foster their own vibrant inner life.
