 Reverend Walter Dubois

A southern preacher based loosely on everybody yet nobody, Dubois is a very funny and sometimes irreverent speaker.  A disclaimer is always given before he is turned loose or rather introduced to speak in the pulpit.  He is a favorite among social and community clubs and even though he becomes raucously funny, he can lay out the pure Word of God with the best slick-haired, bare-chinned, suited evangelist that ever faced a church full of back row pew ploppers.  His sermons include: "Lay your whiskey bottle down" "Giddy-up Mule!" and seasonal stories of "How Come Christmas?" and "The Wonderfulest Christmas in the United States."  Average length of sermon: 25 minutes.  Excerpt from20th anniversary show.

 

Jonathan Edwards

Premiered October 15, 2000, at New Hebron Baptist Church in Concord, GA.  Edwards, a Puritan during the 18th century,  was a prominent theologian who helped shape this country prior to its Revolutionary War and consequent independence.  His sermon "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God" is a powerful example of puritan beliefs and its message is still vibrant today.  Length of complete sermon plus remarks: 50 minutes.

Excerpt from20th anniversary show.

 

 

Charles Wesley

Premiered April 30, 2001, at Fincher United Methodist Church in Meansville, GA.  Wesley sailed to America with his brother John and landed at Frederica, Georgia, on March 17, 1736.  Several minutes later he stood beneath a live oak and preached his inaugural sermon "On Singleness of Intention."  Georgia's founder, Gen. James E. Oglethorpe, was in attendance.  Outside or indoors, this message still inspires service to God.  Length of drama: 30 minutes.  Excerpt from20th anniversary show.
