The Rev. Canon Charles K. Robertson, PhD, Canon to Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, will preach on Sunday, May 23 and Sunday, May 30 on Day 1, the national syndicated weekly ecumenical radio program produced by the Alliance for Christian Media.

In his sermon for Pentecost Sunday, May 23, "Golden Age?," Robertson explores the account of the birth of the church as relayed in Acts 2. His sermon for Trinity Sunday, May 30, "The Dance," focuses on the interrelationship of God the Three-in-One.

Each program includes the sermon and a message by Robertson along with interviews conducted by Peter Wallace, executive producer and host.

A graduate of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech), Robertson earned a master of divinity degree from Virginia Theological Seminary and a Ph.D. from Durham University in the United Kingdom. He serves on several national boards and has authored or edited many books, most recently Transforming Stewardship, Jesus and Paul: Global Perspectives, and the upcoming Conversations with Scripture: The Acts of the Apostles.

Formerly known as The Protestant Hour, Day 1 celebrates 65 years of weekly broadcast in 2010. Distributed to 200 radio stations across America and overseas, it is produced by the Alliance for Christian Media in association with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, the Episcopal Church, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), the United Church of Christ and the United Methodist Church. The program has received numerous awards, including the George Foster Peabody Award and the Communicators Award for Excellence in inspirational radio.
