Chadwick Vaughn to preach on ‘Day 1’
Rector of St. Francis’ Episcopal Church, Macon, Ga., speaks on the ‘Show Me’ apostle
The Very Rev. S. Chadwick Vaughn, rector of St. Francis’ Episcopal Church in Macon, Ga., is the featured preacher April 15 on “Day 1” with host Peter Wallace, the nationally syndicated ecumenical radio program also accessible online at Day1.org.
Vaughn is a graduate of Oglethorpe University in Atlanta, Ga., and worked several years at the Oglethorpe University Museum of Art before becoming associate director of development at the university. After that he served three years as executive assistant to the Very Rev. Samuel G. Candler, dean of the Cathedral of St. Philip, in Atlanta.
Vaughn earned his M.Div. degree from the Seminary of the Southwest in Austin, Tex. After graduating, he served as associate priest at St. David’s Episcopal Church in Austin for three years. He assumed his duties at St. Francis’ in October 2009.
His “Day 1” sermon for the second Sunday in Easter, based on the story of “Doubting Thomas” in John 20:19-29, is entitled “Missouri, ‘My Fair Lady,’ and the Mission of the Church.”
“Whether or not he had ever visited Missouri or seen ‘My Fair Lady,’ I believe it is safe to say that Thomas could surely be identified as the ‘Show Me’ apostle,” he says. “And although he has long been identified as the doubter, to cut him some slack I think we can, upon second glance, also detect something beyond doubt—a yearning, perhaps; a yearning to see with his eyes and touch with his hands that which his soul already knows to be true.”
The program includes interviews with Vaughn conducted by Wallace, who is also executive producer.
“Day 1” has been broadcast every week for 67 years, formerly as “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. The program is produced by the Alliance for Christian Media, based in Atlanta, Ga.
