The sermon "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God" will be dramatically preached in its complete original text by the Rev. Stephen W. Pyle at 6 p.m. Thursday at Ambassador Baptist Church. The host will be the Rev. Mike House.
This classic literary written sermon by Jonathan Edwards, an American Puritan, dramatically persuaded several in the congregation at Enfield, Conn., on July 8, 1741, to make decisions for Christ. The "Great Awakening" of the late 1730s and early 1740s stirred Colonial America to great passion for its Creator. Edwards became one of the greatest theologians and preachers of the Reformation movement in early America.
Pyle will don a colonial wig, period minister's robe and eye specs to present this sermon. Others are invited to dress in old-fashioned attire if possible. Pyle's wife Sallie will join him in an 18th century wardrobe.
All are invited to listen to this special message.
