News from “Day 1”®
The V. Rev. Allen Pruitt, rector of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in LaGrange, GA, is the featured preacher for the fourth Sunday in Lent, March 11, on “Day 1” with host Peter Wallace, the nationally broadcast ecumenical radio program also accessible online at Day1.org.
Pruitt has served as rector of St. Mark’s since 2010. He is also dean of the Chattahoochee Valley Convocation in the Diocese of Atlanta. Earlier he served as assistant rector at St. Francis Episcopal Church in Great Falls, Va. A graduate of Shorter College in Rome, Ga., Pruitt earned his M.Div. from Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria.
“There Is Enough,” Pruitt’s sermon for March 11, is drawn from the story in Numbers 21:4-9 of the serpents plaguing the complaining Israelites in the wilderness. “We are afraid there isn’t enough, that there isn’t going to be enough,” he says. “As if the God who brought the world into being couldn’t provide food enough for the people.”
The program includes interviews with Pruitt 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 220 radio stations across America and overseas.
