The Rev. Kimberly S. Jackson, Associate Rector for Adult Formation and Service Ministry at All Saints’ Episcopal Church, Atlanta, is the featured preacher, May 6, on “Day 1” with host Peter Wallace, the nationally broadcast ecumenical radio program also accessible online at Day1.org.  

A graduate of Furman University, Jackson earned her M.Div. at Candler School of Theology at Emory University. She is a public theologian who advocates for women and children’s issues and to end the death penalty. She formerly served as chaplain at the Absalom Jones Episcopal Center serving Atlanta University Center communities.

“Quack Like a Duck: Singing in the Rain,” Jackson’s sermon for May 6, is drawn from Psalm 98. “I recognize that as individuals, our lives can be very complicated and hard: there’s disappointment, grief, illness, and loss,” she says. “So, it makes sense that during rainy days — during difficult times —  the temptation is to clam up, to take a vow of silence and not have anything at all to say about or to our God.” 

The program includes interviews with Jackson conducted by Wallace, who is also executive producer. 

“Day 1” has been broadcast every week for 73 years, formerly as “The Protestant Hour.” Featuring outstanding preachers from the mainline denominations, “Day 1” is currently distributed to more than 200 radio stations across America and overseas. The program is produced by the Alliance for Christian Media, based in Atlanta, Ga. For more information, call toll free 888-411-Day-1 or check the program’s website, http://day1.org.
