The Rev. Dr. Micah T. J. Jackson, president of Bexley Seabury Seminary in Chicago, is the featured preacher April 18, 2021, on Day1 with host Peter Wallace. The nationally broadcast ecumenical radio program is accessible online on Day1.org and by podcast.

“Witness for the Resurrection” is Jackson’s sermon for April 18. It is based on the account of Jesus’s resurrection appearance to his disciples found in Luke 24: 36b-48. He says, “The truth about Jesus is not always comfortable to tell, and it isn’t always comfortable to hear.”

Before assuming the presidency of Bexley Seabury in June 2018, Jackson was the Bishop John Hines Associate Professor of Preaching and director of Comprehensive Wellness at the Seminary of the Southwest in Austin, Texas. He earned an M.T.S. from Seabury-Western Theological Seminary, an M.Div. from Leadville Lombard Theological School, and a Ph.D. from Graduate Theological Union.

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