Fall 1908 Sermons

Among the manuscripts left by Earl Davis were a collection of sheets announcing services for Fall, 1908. These included several with the title, “Unity Church Paragraph Pulpit,” which provided a kind of abstract for the sermon. It seems almost certain that these sheets were used for announcements made in the local newspaper about upcoming services.

Only a few of these sheets have dates on them. But the titles of the sermons coordinate with sermon manuscripts that are dated. In a few cases, I have extrapolated dates.

In mid-October Earl Davis made a decision to offer a Sunday evening service in addition to the Sunday morning service. The announcement sheets include a short explanation for what he hoped to accomplish with the evening services.
