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.

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.

Transforming Power of the Word of God

Transforming Power of the Word of God

Date: [1940..1970]
Creator: Villines, Frank (1899-1979)
Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. This particular sermon chart starts with the story of the prophet Ezekiel and the valley of dry bones--Ezekiel 37:1-12. The notes on the chart make it very hard to follow the thought of the speaker without having narrative to go with it. The overall point seems to be that the power of God is found in the reading of scripture and obedience to the Gospel.
