The Rev. Michael Mills, rector of the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd in Dallas, Tex., is the featured preacher Aug. 9 on Day 1 with host Peter Wallace, the nationally broadcast ecumenical radio program also accessible online at Day1.org and by podcast.
Mills came to the Church of the Good Shepherd eight years ago. Earlier he was dean and rector of the Cathedral Church of St. Matthew in Dallas, the acting dean of the Anglican School of Theology, and served in a variety of roles in other churches in England and the U.S. He is also an attorney. He earned his M.Div. from Nashotah House Theological Seminary and his J.D. from the University of Alabama School of Law.
His sermon for Aug. 9, “The Inactive Active Christian,” is based on Matthew 14:22-33, in which the frightened disciples see Jesus walking toward them across the sea. “Throughout the gospels, Jesus says amazing things and does astounding things, and he says those things and does those things because of who he is, not the other way around.” Mills says, “That’s true of you, too.”
The program includes interviews with Mills conducted by Wallace, who is also executive producer.
