Katie Givens Kime to preach on Day1

The Rev. Dr. Katie Givens Kime, an Atlanta-based Presbyterian minister who serves as Director of Religion and Civic Engagement for Odyssey Impact in New York City, is the featured preacher for the first Sunday of Lent, March 1, on “Day 1” with host Peter Wallace, the nationally broadcast ecumenical radio program also accessible online at Day1.org and by podcast.

Kime is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and earned her M.Div. at Union Theological Seminary in New York. She served Presbyterian churches in New York and Atlanta before earning a Ph.D. in religion from Emory University. She was a post-doctoral fellow for the Department of Spiritual Care, Psychology of Religion, and Religious Education, Institute for Practical Theology, University of Bern, Switzerland, then joined Odyssey Impact early in 2019.

“Know It All?” Kime’s sermon for March 1, is drawn from the story of the serpent and the apple in the Garden of Eden Genesis 2 and 3. “The promise of the Tree of Knowledge is that the one who eats from it will know everything,” she says. “Just take a minute and imagine. . . what would you like to know how to do?”

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

“Day 1” has been broadcast every week for 75 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.
