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.

What Must I Do To Be Saved

Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. This particular sermon chart presents the fullness of what among Churches of Christ has been called the "Plan of Salvation." He cites three texts from the gospels (prior to the Day of Pentecost in Acts 2) in the first portion; in the second and larger portion he quotes a series of examples of conversion all from the book of Acts. His methodology is to discover in these cases of conversion the presence or absence of certain elements, compile them into a chart, and from the aggregate reason to the "Plan of Salvation." The performance of this plan answers the question "What must I do to be saved?" The constituent parts of the plan as outlined in the chart are: (T)eaching or (H)earing; (B)elief; (R)epentance; (C)onfession and (B)aptism followed by (R)emission of sins or (S)alvation. It is unclear how the mathematical chart functions for the preacher.

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.

Saved by Grace-Eph 2:8

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 understands grace to be the organizing principle undergirding the seven means of salvation cited in the upper left column. Each appears to emerge from grace. Next the preacher presents the plan of salvation ([H]ear, [B]elieve, [R]epent, [C]onfess, [B]aptism) as it was also practiced by the Ephesians. Further, Paul was also "saved by grace" in this manner. It appears the second set of abbreviations stand for faith, repentance, baptism and obedience in the grace and blood of Christ. The final appeal, "Why should his great love -- grace -- blood be in vain?" draws the hearers to the point of decision and closes the sermon on an evangelistic note.

The chart further illustrates that Christ is also a rock over which some people stumble and fall.
