Each week the Day1 program, hosted by Peter Wallace, presents an inspiring message from one of America's most compelling preachers representing the mainline Protestant churches. The interview segments inform you about the speaker and the sermon Scripture text, and share ways you can respond to the message personally in your faith and life.
Quincy Brown: Is Jesus in Your Boat?
Dr. Quincy Brown says the good news of this gospel story is that Jesus tells the disciples to cross to the other side of the late, meaning that he will be present with them - and us - when we are crossing over the obstacles, problems, and uncertain situations in our lives.
Otis Moss III: Ezekiel's Tree
The Rev. Dr. Otis Moss explores the prophet/poet Ezekiel's words about God's tree, where diversity and equality thrive because they are sourced in the rich soil of faith and the power of the Son.
Joy J. Moore: Trading Our Sorrows
In her sermon, Dr. Joy J. Moore say the people of Samuel’s day don’t seek hospitality and holiness; they settle for profit, power, and prestige. And the same is true today, as we still put our trust in those in power rather than in the king that God has given us in Jesus Christ—a far different kind than any earthly king.
Greg Cootsona: The Banana Slug, the Leaves, and the Triune God
In his Trinity Sunday sermon, Dr. Greg Cootsona says that realizing that our Triune God is with us might be as simple as pausing and taking in the beauty that’s around us. So let's pay attention.
Anna Traynham: The Miracle of Pentecost
In her Day of Pentecost sermon, the Rev. Anna Traynham says the miracle of the Spirit on the first Pentecost was to let us hear and therefore see each other—the miracle was to bless our diversity, solidify our unity as one global church born of the Holy Spirit on the first Pentecost.
Joshua Scott: A Prayer for the Church to Wake Up
The Rev. Dr. Josh Scott says in Ephesians Paul prays for the church to reach its full potential--the full potential to proclaim Christ in its worship, its spiritual formation, its evangelism, in small groups, outreach activities, and in the very lives we live.
Good Protestant Teaching
If your experience or assumption about Protestant churches comes from either nondenominational or non-mainline denomination preachers on television speaking out against this or that culture war issue, you owe it to yourself to hear what real Protestant teaching is and why the Bible's actually worth our attention. Day1 stands firm in the faith -- which makes it a breath of fresh air!
The best messages from the top spokespersons from Protestant churches. I listen each week on my iPod Touch as I exercise.
Like a shot of sunshine!
Great messages and stories told in a way that can open many doors to The Spirit within. Thank you Day1 for helping being these voices to my morning commute!
