News from Day1: Kirkpatrick to Preach

The Rev. Nathan Kirkpatrick, managing director of Leadership Education at Duke University Divinity School and head of Alban at Duke in Durham, N.C., will be the featured preacher on “Day 1” Nov. 3.  Kirkpatrick’s sermon “We Are All God’s Children Now,” is drawn from Luke 16:20-31, a portion of the Sermon on the Plain that begins with the “Beatitudes” and ends with the “Golden Rule.” Commenting on the use of the word saint to describe everyday people, he says, “The complexity of their lives helps us to nuance what we mean by saint. We do not mean the perfect. We do not mean the heroic. We do not mean just the self-sacrificing or the extraordinary.”

In addition to his roles at Duke Divinity School, Kirkpatrick is an associate priest at the Episcopal Church of the Advocate in Chapel Hill, NC. He has preached and taught in churches around the U.S. and on three continents. Raised in the mountains of North Carolina, Kirkpatrick graduated from Wake Forest University and Duke Divinity School.

Simon Mainwaring to preach on Day1

The National Weekly Ecumenical Radio Program produced by the Alliance for Christian Media

The Rev. Dr. Simon Mainwaring, rector at All Saints’ Episcopal Church, will be the featured preacher Sept. 15 on “Day 1” with host Peter Wallace, the nationally broadcast ecumenical radio program also accessible online at Day1.org and via podcast. 

“Leaving Egypt,” Mainwaring’s sermon for Sept. 15, is based on Exodus 3:7-14, the story of the golden calf. “It matters, doesn’t it, where we plant our feet,” he said. “I am an immigrant in this country, so I know how it feels to plant your feet in two places at once. It doesn’t work.”

Originally from England, Mainwaring was educated at Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, and the University of Birmingham, Edgbaston, where he earned a PhD in biblical theology. He arrived at All Saints' two years ago from St. Andrew’s By-the-Sea in San Diego, California, where he had served as rector for seven years. He also served the Diocese of San Diego as Dean of Studies at the Diocesan School for Ministry and was president of the Diocesan Standing Committee. 

 Simon has ministered in schools, hospitals, and parish churches, and is also the author of two books, a number of journal articles, and his blog “God at the Beach.”

 The program on Sept. 15 will include interviews with Mainwaring.

 “Day 1” has been broadcast every week for 74 years, formerly under the title, “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.
