Several Sunday mornings ago, a local church had a missionary as a guest speaker, and his speech appealed to the congregation through his incorporation of ethos, logos, and pathos. The missionary began his speech by stating that he had originally planned to become a pastor after graduating from seminary, but after receiving his degree he felt led to use his skills to assist the less fortunate. He soon joined an organization and has spent the past eight years in Latin America helping others while teaching Christianity. In the previous statement, the missionary attempted to appeal to the congregation through ethos. He discussed seminary school and his missionary experience in order to establish credibility as a trustworthy man of God. As the missionary continued his speech he discussed the high crime and poverty rate in Latin America, and he stated that Americans have an obligation to assist Latin Americans as the United States is an abundantly blessed nation. The missionary integrated a slide show into his speech, and he projected statistics of the crime and poverty rates in Latin America and the United States in order to give the congregation perspective. The following part of the speech was the missionary’s …show more content…
The missionary’s speech was his attempt at persuading the congregation to donate money to him and his cause. Truly, his use of ethos, logos, and pathos was genuine. Throughout his speech, he spoke with a sincerity that externalized his compassion for others, especially Latin Americans. Also, the missionary put a lot of focus on not just teaching Christianity but on owning a loving Christian character through humanity and kindness. The missionary honestly discussed his past, used honest statistics, and gave his speech to help Latin Americans. He was a good guy who after church personally thanked everyone for their

Fourthly, in “Credo,” measures 24-30, the liturgical text should be “Et in unum Dominum Jesum Christum,” but the autograph has the altos singing “Credo in unum Dominum filium” instead. The “Jesum Christum” is omitted, and this is the only point in the liturgical text of the Credo where either of these two names appears. Dvořák wrote his Credo without either of them in his autograph. However, the publisher changed the text according to the liturgical text.
Dr. Patrick Miller gave an amazing and interesting speech on the issue of the Confederate flag and monuments. The presenter went through the history of what the Confederate flag once stood for and how it became a symbol that affects minorities today. I really like how he was able to relate everything that was occurring in modern times. Something that surprised me is the vast amount of monuments that are still stand to this very day. Dr. Miller told the audience the great lengths people have gone to remove anything that is related to the Confederacy, for example, the many schools in the south were renamed after Obama since they were originally named after Confederate fugues, such as: Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, and Jefferson Davis.
In his “Address to the Greater Houston Ministerial Association” on September 12, 1960 to Reverend Meza and Reverend Reck, United States President, John F. Kennedy, tries to persuade the rev. And perhaps all of America to not look at his religious beliefs for making America's choices, but rather what is best for America's people. He does this by having a frustrated tone using phrases such as “so-called religious issue” he uses these words to get his point clearly across. On September 12, 1960 people were shocked to see that President Kennedy was so annoyed with the public saying that there was an issue with his religious beliefs.
In her “Commencement Speech at Mount Holyoke College”, Anna Quindlen employs personal anecdotes and her academic background to effectively build her credibility. Quindlen explains how her strive for perfection in her younger years only served to add needless parasitic pressure. She claims that “being perfect day after day, year after year, became like always carrying a backpack filled with bricks on my back” (Quindlen 1). Drawing from her personal experiences, Quindlen challenges her audience to “give up the backpack”. By building a strong connection through shared hardship, Quindlen appears as an authority on defying conformity to discover one’s own individuality.

By including rhetorical devices such as analepsis and epanaphoras in her speech, women's activist, Cady Stanton in her Keynote Address manages to successfully convey her message on how the mistreatment of women's rights must come to an end. Throughout the essay, Mrs. Stanton had done an excellent job of identifying her audience and appealing to the common goal that was shared amongst one another. Due to the fact that the majority of the audience were female, Mrs. Stanton had to take an approach where her choice of words would spark a sense of empowerment rather than disenfranchise the attendees of the convention. Mrs. Stanton does this as she states “ Consider our costume far more artistic than theirs.
Letter From Birmingham Jail: Ethos, Pathos, Logos. History in the past provided us with many former activists such as Rosa Parks, Ruby Bridges, Bayard Rustin, and Martin Luther King Jr. As a well known activist, Martin Luther King Jr. wrote the “Letter From Birmingham Jail”.
Langston Hughes used rhetoric words in his story “Salvation,” to provide foreshadows, and emotional appeals to his struggles in becoming religiously saved. Hughes began his story by stating “I was saved from sin when I was going on thirteen (179).” The irony in this opening is that Hughes initially believed in the presence of Jesus, but unexpected pressures pushed him to betray and deceive his faith. The setting of Hughes struggles took place in a religious ceremony in his Auntie Reed’s church. In this service, many young children like Hughes were gathered to be spiritually cleansed by the light of Jesus.
The priest orated stories to inform and mainly pursue not to belittle one another’s experience on this planet. This was taken place at University of the Pacific’s Morris Chapel, Sunday evening. Though I can safely say that the majority of the audience consisted of frequent Catholic followers, I noticed a number of students who are also in COMM 27. Overall the speech was very compelling and easy to follow.

In addition, he uses several persuasion tactics to convince his audience of his ideas.
A twelve year old boy a world away from his parents once wrote in a letter to his parents: “And I have nothing to comfort me, nor is there nothing to be gotten here but sickness and death.” This child was Richard Frethorne, and in “Letter to Father and Mother,” he communicates his desperation caused by the new world’s merciless environment to his parents to persuade them to send food and pay off his accumulated debts from the journey. He accomplishes this with deliberate word choice and allusions to the bible to appeal to ethos, pathos, and logos. Frethorne uses diction, imagery, and facts to create a letter to his parents which aims to garner sympathy for his state of life and to persuade them to send food and pay off his debts.
Coming from a different culture but still embracing the Christian values that Loma Linda University emphasizes, I believe that my unique background and personal experiences distinguish my application from others. Growing up in Egypt, where the gap between social classes is significant, my parents always stressed the need to prioritize service into my life encouraging me to dedicate time in volunteering and helping others. As a result, my experience has grown from volunteering to serve as a camp leader for orphans in the summer to participating in international dental service trips. These involvements would allow me to use my skills in organizing missions trips at Loma Linda. Being a Coptic Orthodox Christian enables me to add diversity to the
The sermon begins with an introduction to the story of Peter Healing a Lame Beggar and emphasizes on Acts 3:1-8. Bishop Jakes discusses that the man in the story was only expecting to receive something, no matter what it was, as long as it was something. He then goes into how people are afraid of disappointment, how to have the courage to raise your expectations, and how to break your patterns. He describes how the environment you are in can affect your success and how it’s beneficial to surround yourself with others who are better and who have different things than you do. To be able to want better and receive better, you have to surround yourself with better.
