Three Types of Churches

Three Types of Churches

Date: [1943..1959]
Creator: Mickey, Wayne & Mickey, Wayne
Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. In this particular sermon chart, Mickey compares and contrasts two streams within the Stone-Campbell Movement. He marshals Biblical data in the center column under rubrics of name, organization, doctrine and worship. Against this data to its left he contrasts in bullet points the practice of "First Christian," or the emerging Christian Church (Disciples of Christ); to its right he compares the acapella Churches of Christ. This chart portrays how division in a religious tradition was perceived and communicated in sermonic form in a congregational setting.

The Two Covenants

The Two Covenants

Date: [1940..1970]
Creator: unknown
Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. This particular sermon chart describes the differences between the Law of Moses and the Law of Christ. Much is taken from Galatians 5 to show that we no longer live under the Law of Moses. "Part of the Old Law is in the New Testament, why not more? Christ left it where he wanted it. Who has authority to bring over what he left back there? Name one thing he wants today not found in the New Testament."

Power of Little Things

Power of Little Things

Date: [1947..1960]
Creator: unknown
Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. Upon describing several 'little things' in the Bible and from nature, this sermon chart motivates using metaphors of size. Employing these metaphors, the preacher cites several Biblical examples of the great impact of small or seemingly insignificant actions. One contemporary reference is to the 1947 explosion at Texas City, Texas. The preacher closes the sermon with an invitation to embrace simplicity though the "world stumbles" over it.

Our Duty to Young Folk

Our Duty to Young Folk

Date: [1900..1960]
Creator: unknown
Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. This particular sermon chart begins with God's instruction to Abraham to teach his children. The preacher then elaborates upon the Biblical imperative to instruct and indoctrinate children in the way of God. He spends considerable time in Deuteronomy and Proverbs and cites disastrous examples from the Bible when such instruction went unheeded. He concludes the sermon by citing similar passages from the epistles. He refers to [Robert G.] Ingersoll, noted 19th c agnostic as a counter-example of the influence parents have on children. His emphatic conclusion, lettered large and in red, asks, "Who will be Leaders of Tomorrow?"

The Right to the Tree of Life

The Right to the Tree of Life

Date: [1970..1990]
Creator: Burtch, Kenneth & Burtch, Kenneth
Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. The narrative flow of this sermon chart proceeds from the tree of life in the Biblical Garden of Eden (left) to the tree of life in heaven at the end of time (right). The tree has been "transplant[ed]." In the mean time, there is a play off of truth and falsehood, again drawing from the account of Eve's believing a lie in the Garden of Eden and applied to modern times by way of citation from 2 Thessalonians. The alternative to persisting in lies is to "purify [one's] soul by obeying the truth." Just as one can hear, believe and obey a lie (and be "lost in sin"), so can one hear, believe and obey the truth (and be saved from sin). Such constitutes the sermon's central exhortation.

Resurrection of Christ

Resurrection of Christ

Date: [1900..1960]
Creator: unknown
Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. This particular sermon chart illustrates a sermon in four points. The main thrusts of each are: Jesus was "really dead", the tomb was empty, was the resurrection a "vision or hallucination?" and the many witnesses of the life and ministry of Jesus. The final point transitions into an appeal based on the evidence presented. Affirming from the four points that Jesus' "right to authority' is unquestionable, the preacher finally "declares our faith" urging hearers to "...obey him...live for Him and be Ready."

Precious Stone

Precious Stone

Date: [1940..1960]
Creator: Mickey, Wayne & Mickey, Wayne
Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. This particular sermon chart identifies the precious stone mentioned in Isaiah 28:26 as Christ, the rock mentioned in Matthew 16:18, 1 Peter 2:4, Acts 4:11, and 1 Corinthians 10:4. The chart also illustrates the idea that people who listen to Christ and put his words into practice are like wise men who build their houses on a rock (Matthew 7:24) and are themselves are collectively being built into a spiritual house built on the only solid foundation. The chart further illustrates that Christ is also a rock over which some people stumble and fall.
