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.

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.

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."

Change of Heart

Change of Heart

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 divides the heath/soul of an individual into four categories or components: Intellect, Affections, Will, Conscience. The apparent argument is that all four components must be taught and changed before a person can truly become a christian. "All the heart needs teaching: intellect only--critic, emotions only--fanatic, will alone--prejudice." "Intellect changed by testimony...affections changed by evidence...will changed by thinking on these...these all lead to obedience...faith purifies the heart...repentance changes the life...confession changed the allegiance...baptism puts one into changed state."
