The Florida Times Union Profiles Episcopal Priest Deborah Jackson

Posted by Kendall Harmon

For 25 years, the Rev. Deborah Jackson guided insurers in competing for the hearts and minds of people looking to protect the financial security of their loved ones.

Then she decided that she wanted to guide people toward assuring themselves more fruitful lives.

"I enjoyed doing marketing research," said Jackson, who spent more than two decades at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida. "But for years, when I was still in the insurance industry, I felt that still, small voice from God saying, 'Do more to make a difference.' "

In 2007, Jackson got a chance to heed that voice - in a big way.

She earned a master of divinity degree from The University of the South in Sewanee, Tenn., and began her ministry at St. John's Cathedral in downtown Jacksonville - the cathedral for the Episcopal Diocese of Northeast Florida.

It the Diocese of Florida.  I assume Jesus is in there someplace, but the article never goes beyond the secular.

Debra is an incredible Christian witness to all who are around her.  Her love for our Lord is without question.  Br. Michael you must remember you are reading a secular newspaper.
