Hinged on the Cross

Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. This particular sermon chart uses the metaphor of the cross as a hinge, and allows the preacher to move from the "dawn" of time to its "end." In this sweeping description of the essence of time and God's work in it, the preacher discuss what "lead[s] to Christ' and from the cross what "lead[s] to God" until the end. The cross therefore is a pivotal moment in the center of time; it functions as a center of gravity tying the narrative into coherence. It is not clearly apparent if there is a direct correlation between the pairs of planks to the left and right of the cross. "God's love," however, runs throughout the narrative. This chart derives from Dillard Thurman, "Hinged on a Cross" [chart with article] The Vindicator 30 (October 1963), 1-4.

The Holy Spirit's Work in Revelation

Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. The thrust of this particular sermon engages the question of how the Holy Spirit operates and communicates to persons today. Citing examples of the Spirit's "direct operation" through prophets, Christ and the apostles, in the past the preacher ultimately moves to the Bible as the source of guidance and the location of the Holy Spirit's on-going work today.

How to Obey the Gospel

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 demonstrates, in a parallel fashion (from Romans 6:1-18) that in baptism one obeys the gospel. Baptism in this way reflects back upon Christ's death, burial and resurrection. The results of baptism are "free[dom] from sin."

It Is No Secret

Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. The key text for this sermon chart appears at the foot of the cross, Romans 10;17. Two figures flank the cross, Noah to the left and Naaman to the right. Both are biblical figures and both are accompanied with appropriate textual citations. On the cross is a serpent, citing Number 21:6-9, representing the salvation of Israel in the time of Moses. The question put before the hearers of the sermon is, will you obey God like Noah, Naaman and Israel did?
