Anything in a Name?

Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. In this particular sermon chart, the preacher's chief concern is the name by which a local group of Christians is known. A fundamental point underlying this sermon is the conviction that "Bible names unite -- human [names] divide." A name is not a small matter for the church, just as it was significant for Israel. The call, therefore, to hearers is to utilize only 'Bible' or 'Biblical' names for congregations.

Baptism--its Action and Purpose

Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. In this particular sermon chart, using Acts 19:1-5 as a key text, the sermon begins with the matter of definitions; first transliterated Greek words, then Webster and finally an array of Bible citations to arrive at a definition of baptism as "burial, planting, washing" (as highlighted in red in the left column). This point is further stressed from Romans 6:17-18 and 1 Corinthians 15:1-4: that the "D.B.R." (death, burial and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth) is foundational Christian doctrine expressed in the life of a believer in immersion in water. The right column explores the purposes of baptism. For this preacher apparently the fundamental purpose of baptism is to (in red letters) "obey God."

Can All Understand Bible Alike

Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. In this particular sermon chart, affirming first that a "guide [is] needed" the preacher stresses the Bible is intended for "plain" or "common folk." Confident of humanity's capacity to "understand" and given the simple nature of the Bible, he stresses therefore that "God demands" humans to be "of one mind" as was the "early church." If his hearers will reject "prejudice," "creeds" and their "lack of study' they too can be "one."

Can Folk Be Saved Out of Church?

Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. Using this particular sermon chart, as the preacher reads down the pages, first the left, then the right page, he traces the meaning of identity in the people of God. He moves quickly to the church, citing Ephesians 1 and Colossians 1. This sermon explores, if only in a basic way, a common understanding of ecclesiology, or the doctrine of the church, among Churches of Christ. By employing imagery of the large book, presumably a Bible, as the backdrop for the chart contents, the preacher reinforces a notion that he speaks only from the Bible. In this way the chart reflects both a doctrinal commitments, but also a persuasive rhetorical strategy.
