Westminster College Alumnus Writes Book of Sermons

NEW WILMINGTON, Pa.  --  The Rev. Dr. William Jackson, Presbyterian minister and 1958 Westminster College graduate, recently wrote "More than a Wish: Sermons at Shadyside Presbyterian Church."

Jackson served as interim pastor of the Shadyside Presbyterian Church from 1999-2003, and his book is a collection of sermons given during that time.

"I must admit that I found it to be a daunting challenge," wrote Jackson.  "For while my sermons have been carefully and prayerfully prepared, they were delivered without notes, and much of what was said was accentuated by gestures, facial expressions, tone of voice, volume (high and low) and appropriate pauses.  Preparing these sermons for reading required the extra discipline and effort of attempting to recapture the original meaning and intent of the messages."

Prior to Shadyside, Jackson served churches in Abington, Boardman and Canton, Ohio, and Flint, Mich.  He served Westminster College as dean of the chapel for a year, and was a part-time director of the Department of Religion at Chautauqua Institution from 1984-1989.
