Change of Heart

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."

The Christian Race

Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. This unusually graphic sermon chart gets its inspiration from II Timothy 4:7, describing the Christian's walk as a race. The church is depicted as an arena, with Christians on the track--some persevering and some falling to various doubts and temptations. Individuals outside of the arena represent the "rest of the world" that is outside the church. On an interesting note, all individuals drawn are caucasian males. It is conceivable that this chart was made for a week-long meeting.

Church-World

Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. This particular sermon chart divides society into three groups: Infants (the innocent who are not responsible for their actions good or bad), those in the Church, and those of the world outside of the Church. The chart shows what happens to all after death--whether to Heaven or Hell--with multiple scripture references.

Essential and the Incidental

Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. This particular sermon chart outlines and gives examples of commands given in the New Testament (The Essintial) and differentiates them from surrounding details (The Incidental) using three different events described in the New Testament: The Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20), The Conversion of Saul (Acts 9:1-18; 22:1-16) and The Lord's Supper (Matthew 26:26-29, 2 Chorinthians 11:17-34;10:17 and Acts 20:7). Reference is made to what is known as the "CENI Hermeneutic" (Command, Example, Necessary Inference) as the source of those things Essential. Those things Incidental, which many denominations or even individual congregations might disagree about, are said to be governed by Expediency, Decency and Order (1 Corinthians 10:23; 14:40).

Five States Of Man

Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. This particular sermon chart graphically describes five spiritual states of mankind with supporting scriptures: Innocence (Ezekiel 18:20; Matthew 19:14), Condemnation (Galatians 3:22), Justification (Romans 3:24), Eternal Life (Matthew 25:46) and Eternal Death (Revelation 20:14). The five circles are connected with arrows indicating Sin, Obedience, and Physical Death. Many of these charts begin as ordinary bed sheets; this one still has the tag from J.C. Penney.

[Four Photographs of Individuals at Duncan Home]

Description: Four photographs taken at the Duncan Home. The second photograph from the top is of three women and two men sitting around at a dining room table with one of the chairs empty, mostly likely the photographer. The remaining three photographs are all taken outside of individuals standing in a row. Two of the photos are very similar as to the background, as well as probably being taken on the same day. There is a handwritten note on the back of the fourth photograph which reads, "Bro. and Sister Duncan, Jesse Mc., ?? and Bettie - made at the Duncan home - 12/25/47."

God is Able... 2 Cor 9:8

Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. This particular sermon chart prominently features 2 Corinthians 9:8,10-11 from the American Standard Version. "God is able to make all grace abound unto you; that ye, having always all sufficiency in everything, may abound unto every good work...[and God] shall supply and multiply your seed for sowing, and increase the fruits of your righteousness: ye being enriched in everything unto all liberality, which worketh through us thanksgiving to God."
