INTRODUCTION: The builder and developer of the Elkins Lake community in Huntsville, Texas, was a committed Baptist businessman. Out of his concern for the working staff of that growing community, he asked the pastor of the First Baptist Church of Huntsville to lead an Easter service on Easter Sunday of 1970.

Critical Analysis Paper I have observed and analyzed the sermon of the Reverend James B. Leonard of Mount Zion African Methodist Episcopal Church of Little River, SC on November 6, 2011. Reverend Leonard has been a pastor for many years but has been the pastor of Mount Zion Methodist Episcopal Church for seven years. He is highly known for his numerous works in our church and in our community. I will be discussing the structure and content of his sermon, his vocal delivery, and my personal response to the message given. As the sermon began, Reverend Leonard began with a couple of verses from the bible Jeremiah 17: 7-8.
At the age of thirteen, my father brought me to church every Sunday for a doctrine class held before the Mass. The class was supposed to help young boys and girls to be confirmed. I was told about confirmation just like Hughes was told about being saved. In “Salvation”, Hughes wrote, “My aunt told me that when you were saved you saw a light, and something happened to you inside! And Jesus came into your life!
While both the western and eastern states practiced religion every Sunday, and had many denominations, they still had very different views on religious practices. In the east, it was common to practice religion in the form of singing psalms and hymnals while playing them on the piano. They discussed religion frequently. The men were proud to belong to their churches and study religion, and their children were brought up to believe in the same religion as their parents.

Respect and obedience is also a major value in my family.
