Power of Little Things

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.
